Lawyers Weigh In On Tumukunde Arrest, Detention And His Chances Of Winning Court Battle, CID Boss Akullo Warned…

Published

on

Makerere University law don has warned AIGP Grace Akullo, the director Criminal Investigations Department of the Uganda Police that she risks facing the International Criminal Courts of Justice (ICC) over illegal detention and violation of people’s human rights especially Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde.

Nsibambi said that Akullo and other top security operatives are acting with impunity in a bid to appease their bosses and show them that they are working hard to keep them in power.

He predicted that there is no way the state can win treason charges against former security minister Tumukunde .

“I wonder why people in security forces accept to be used, I know that Miss Akullo is a lawyer but the way she is handling Tumukunde’s issue is exposing her. How can you force someone to record a statement without his lawyers?” Nsibambi said.

He said that as a lawyer, Tumukunde tried to explain to Akullo that the constitution does not allow her to search his home without a search warrant from courts of law but she turned a deaf ear.

However, some sources in the intelligence confirmed to

this website that Akullo was waving a search warrant which the police obtained from Buganda road court .

Nsibambi added that Tumukunde being a lawyer asked Akullo to wait for his lawyers to come and witness the search because he feared that some state operatives may plant deadly exhibits in his office and house but Akullo arrogantly refused because she was working under instructions from top officers in government to humiliate Tumukunde.

“You know I have been humiliated by those young security officers especially in Uganda police. One time one of them abused me that I am an idiot. But what I tell them is very simple, you know ICC simplified things when it ruled that whoever violates people’s  rights will face them as an individual without considering his commanders. So whatever Akullo is doing let her know that she will answer for it in future before ICC,” Nsibambi said.

He revealed that as a lawyer, he knows that Tumukunde is going to deny every exhibit that the state found at his office and home because the search was done in absence of his lawyers.

He noted that he is very sure that court will dismiss the matter and Tumukunde will run to the civil court and ask for billions from government.

He said that the government will use tax payer’s money to compensate Tumukunde. Another celebrated criminal lawyer Sam Muyizi revealed that the state cannot defeat Tumukunde because the government is now using treason offence in political matters.

First, Muyizi said that the security personnel tampered with the scene of crime and the entire exhibits. He added that the way the state handle Tumukunde’s treason case is the same way it handled Jamil Mukulu’s case and Omusinga Mumbere, the king of Rwezururu kingdom.

Lt. Gen. Tumukunde is still in detention on charges of treason and his legal team led by Alex Luganda is expecting him in court next week. They were appearing before ‘palamenti yaffe’ programme show on CBS radio.

Lt. Col. Nakalema Directs Arrest of Asian Tycoon Abid Alam Over Rape, Torture Allegation In Mubende…

Published

on

The State House Anti- corruption unit boss Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema has directed the Uganda Police Force to summon Indian Investor Abid Alam to Kasanda police station to record a statement on allegations of torture and rape.

According to credible sources at the Anti-corruption unit, Nakalema today morning talked to Maj. General Sabiiti Muzeeyi and asked him to intervene and assist a one Arthur Mugyenyi who accuses Alam’s workers of torturing his family members and raping his wife in presence of their children.

Sources further revealed that Mugyenyi with the help of their area Member of Parliament Simeo Nsubuga petitioned Nakalema’s anti-corruption unit claiming that they were not helped by the area police when Alam’s goons terrorised them. Last week, Nsubuga said that Alam sent 60 workers to Mugyenyi’s home with machetes and threatened to kill Mugyenyi and his family members.

He said Alam’s workers also cut down Mugyenyi’s banana plantation, destroyed his two houses, and took his 200 cows and 500 goats in a bid to evict him from his land.

Efforts to speak to Alam were futile since his known phone numbers were off.

Published

on

Ugandans and Africans who have been plying their trade in China have cried to their governments to get them out of China.

According to a video from one of the Ugandans who is locked down in china, that was shared by Kampala Central legislator Mohammad Nsereko, they are being ejected from houses, denied access to health care and ejected from public transport and already 4 of their colleagues have died under unclear circumstances.

“The Chinese are discriminating us, when we enter their busses they all run out of the bus. These people are showing us their true colours, we are asking government to help. The Chinese should allow us to go home instead of forcefully arresting us and testing us,” he said.

He added, “We are being tortured, i call upon government to help us leave this country. Already four of our colleagues are dead. Let them allow us to go home. The landlords are chasing us from their houses and asking for a lot of money in rent yet we are not working. Everywhere we go we are being chased, we are now in hiding.”

Nsereko called upon government to immediately intervene and stop this alleged discrimination and inhuman treatment.

“I have received disturbing reports and videos of Ugandans and Africans in China being treated in a degrading manner. I have been informed that some have been ejected from houses, others denied access to health care and ejected from public transport. This is very unfortunate; we call upon the Ugandan government to intervene immediately in this matter.”
