Kayihura is detained at Makindye Barracks with six of his former aide de camps.

According to security sources that Eagle Online talked to, Gen. Kayihura has been linked to the killing of Assistant Inspector General of Police by suspects who were arrested earlier. However, sources say this is one among a host of charges lined up against him by the state. Other charges that are being lined up include espionage that could see treason charges slammed on him.

In a statement released by Uganda Peoples’ Defence Force Spokesperson, Richard Karemire it said Gen. Kayihura is still a serving officer of UPDF and has been staying in Kashagama, Lyantonde district since March 15, 2018.

“Yesterday June 12 he was asked to report to the UPDF chief of Defence force Gen. Divide Muhoozi at General headquarters, Mbuya. A helicopter was subsequently dispatched to transport him from there but on arrival, Gen had travelled to Mbarara and so it had to return to Entebbe air force base,” he said in a statement.
