Renegade Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) General David Sejusa aka Tinyefuza has reportedly left the country after beating a round-the-clock security detail assigned to trail him.
According to sources, Gen Sejusa reportedly left the country through the Malaba, when he forced his way into the ‘No Man’s Land’ area after defying instructions of the immigration officials at the border post.
The sources further intimated to EagleOnline that in the recent past Gen. Sejusa has been at his country home in Sembabule, from where he duped security and headed to Malaba enroute Nairobi where he has reportedly been since Sunday.
This is the second time in five years that Gen. Sejusa, a serving army officer, is leaving the country without official clearance from the UPDF, the first time being in 2013 when he fled after penning a controversial dossier to the Director General of the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) Brig. Ronnie Barya, indicating that there were plans by the government to assassinate top political and military figures including among others himself, then Prime Minister John Patrick Amama Mbabazi and the Internal Affairs Minister Gen. Robert Aronda Nyakairima (RIP).
In the same dossier Gen. Sejusa, the Coordinator of Intelligence Services, also said there was a ‘succession plan’ in Uganda through which President Yoweri Museveni was to be replaced by his son, then Brig. Muhoozi Kainerugaba. Kainerugaba, the Commander of the Special Forces Command (SFC) has since been promoted to Major General.
Meanwhile, the report of Gen. Sejusa’s unofficial departure comes at a time when his Naguru residence is a highly cordoned-off area, surrounded by military police.
