A lawyer representing presidential aspirant John Patrick Amama Mbabazi has claimed that government is planning to arrest his client.

Addressing a press conference at Mbabazi’s Go Forward offices in Nakasero on Monday afternoon, Fred Muwema, one of Mbabazi’s lawyers, said they were investigating intelligence information that their client is to be arrested between now and nomination day tomorrow.

“There is a plot arrest Mbabazi to answer charges of murder, money laundering and spying for a foreign country,’ Muwema said.

By press time it was not possible to establish the authenticity of Muwema’s allegations but the police deputy spokesperson Polly Namaye refuted the lawyer’s assertions, saying they were speculative.

“Those are allegations and should remain as allegations. What is in plan is to actually avail adequate security to ensure that tomorrow’s nominations are a success and candidates proceed safely to the venues where they will hold rallies as planned,” Namaye said.

Three weeks ago discreet blogger ‘Tom Voltaire Okwalinga’ aka TVO wrote on his Facebook wall, also making claims of Mbabazi’s ‘imminent arrest’.

However, Mr Mbabazi is set to be nominated tomorrow, November 3, and he has already written to the Inspector General of Police General Kale Kayihura, informing him of his planned activities.
