Police in Mbale is investigating Amama Mbabazi’s in-law, Hope Mwesigye, for threatening violence.
The Elgon Regional police spokesperson, Diana Nandawula, told Daily Monitor that the Budaka District NRM secretary general, Kefa Nayepa, had opened up a case against Mwesigye.
Nayepa told police in his statement that Mwesigye had warned him on phone to stop misleading Mbabazi’s supporters or else time would catch up with him.
He filed the case at Mbale Central Police Station leaving police to commence investigations.
Nandawula told the newspaper the criminal investigation department was scrutinising the printout of the conversation before any action can be taken.
Nayepa was assigned by President Yoweri Museveni to mobilise about 58,000 coordinators (of Mbabazi) from seven districts in the eastern region to form a Sacco.
According to Mwesigye, Nayepe was assigned to demobilise Mbabazi supporters back to President Museveni.
“So I called and asked him to stop it,” she said, clarifying that she never threatened to take his life.
Mwesigye also revealed that Nayepe had approached her to allow him join Mbabazi camp in Kampala which she declined hence the enmity.
