Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has accused police of running a smear campaign against FDC MP for Nakawa Division Michael Kabaziguruka.
This afternoon, Lukwago who was escorted by MP Moses Kasibante visited the home of Hon. Kabaziguruka at Lake View in Luzira.
The official who has been detained at Special Investigations Unit in Kireka was today afternoon driven back home for a police search.
“It was obvious that the police were on a fishing expedition, in a futile attempt to link him to subversion,” Lukwago said.
“They [police] have now whisked him back to SIU Kireka, without any formal charge being preferred against him.”
Kabaziguruka was arrested yesterday on allegations of illegal gun possession.
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga refused to divulge charges being preferred against the official claiming it would interfere with investigations.
