Gen. Kale Kayihura’s lawyers, Kampala Associated Advocates have revealed that their client is living in comfort at Makindye army barracks.
While appearing at NBS’s morning Breeze show, Counsel Jet Tumwebaze said Kayihura is not in a cell; he lives in a house that contains a bedroom and sitting room.
He also said that the former IGP has not been charged with any criminal case and he is yet to record any ink of statement.
“General Kale Kayihura is well, he’s so disturbed by the falsehoods going on in the media, this is the 8th day. We’ve had a number of visits with him, he’s in Makindye military barracks with a house, a bedroom and a sitting room, he’s not in a cell. He’s not been charged for any criminal cases so far. The man is innocent of all the crimes. Gen. Kayihura hasn’t yet recorded any ink of statement, he has not yet been interrogated by the military, Gen. Kale hasn’t been charged with any of the allegations in the media,” said Tumwebaze.
Gen. Kayihura was arrested last Wednesday from his home in Kashagama, Lyantonde district on the directives of the UPDF chief of defence forces Gen David Muhoozi.
He was flown in a UPDF helicopter to Mbuya army headquarters and referred to Makindye Military Barracks for interrogation on matters that are still unspecified.
