Police has withdrawn the 20 million shillings reward staked for the former Amama Mbabazi head of security, Christopher Aine, who went missing four months ago but resurfaced last evening and handed himself over to security.
In a statement by police publicist Fred Enanga, police says it has withdrawn the reward because the conditions set were not met.
“It is in this very regard, that there will be no consideration for the reward of Uganda shillings20.000.000/= (twenty million shillings only) initially placed on information leading to his (Aine’s) arrest, because there was no information given, after the suspect handed himself over to security,’’ the statement reads in part.
“We want to announce that the search for Christopher Aine has ended, and we would wish to applaud him once again for his voluntary return, which is a legal obligation,” Enanga added.
Aine, who is currently pitching camp at Gen Salim Saleh’s residence, was wanted in connection to a case of assault and occasioning grievous harm in Ntungamo and to answer court summons before the Chief Magistrates Court, Jinja; days before he went missing.
Police also scoffed at those ‘who have all along used cheap propaganda to generate publicity over his (Aine’s) disappearance, claiming he was in police custody and others that insinuated that the police had killed him’.
