Outgoing Leader of Opposition and Bukooli Central Member of Parliament, Philip Wafula Oguttu has snubbed appearing at police today as he didn’t show-up as requested by the force.
Mr Oguttu instead wrote to Criminal Investigation Division (CID) indicating would appear tomorrow, Tuesday, May 17, 2016. In his letter, Mr Oguttu says his lawyers weren’t available to accompany and therefore, he couldn’t go alone.
He was supposed to appear today at 9 am to record a statement in relation to a footage of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party former presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye in the February 18, general elections. The video showed Dr. Besigye showing taking a presidential oath where Mr Oguttu was in attendance.
“Pursuant to section 27A of the police Act, you are hereby summoned to Special investigation Division (CID) before Ag Deputy Director (CID) on Monday, May 16, 2016, at 0900/C without fail to explain the circumstances under which you attended and witnessed the unlawful of taking of the presidential oath and undertaking to execute the functions and duties of the office of the President of the Republic of Uganda by Dr. Kizza Besigye Kifefe”.
