Following a high-level meeting convened by the Commander-In-chief, Yoweri Museveni, Matooke Republic can confirm that former Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura has been summoned and is set to meet the Chief of Defence Forces, Gen David Muhoozi, today.
Kayihura who was sacked on March 4, 2018, by the president has been low-key until yesterday when a manhunt was mounted in search for the maverick General. The search rocked CountryYard Hotel in Lyantonde town where Kahiyura is known to be a regular fixture and his country home in Kisoro, South Western Uganda.
Sources close to the former IGP reveal that although he (Kayihura) is not in detention as widely reported, his close associates, Col Ndahura, the former head of Crime Intelligence and Richard Ndabwoine, the former head of cyber intelligence have been arrested.
It is not clear yet why Gen. Kayihura is the most wanted man in Uganda at the moment but sources close to the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) allude to exclusive information obtained from a one Abel Kitagenda, a former Flying Squad aficionado who is in detention over the murder of the former Assistant Inspector General of Police Felix Kaweesi linking Kayihura to the murder seem to be a great motivation.
Kayihura is also a known associate to the embattled duo Nixon Agasirwe who together with eight others was arrested by CMI in November last year on grounds that they forcefully kidnapped and deported former bodyguard to Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Boda-Boda 2010 leader, Abdallah Kitatta.
It is only a matter of time to find out whether Kayihura’s summon by CDF will lead to his arrest as all the mouthpieces for the respective military outfits; Uganda Police Force, CMI, Special Forces Command and the Government of Uganda remain tightlipped on the matter.
