Being Investigated: Former IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura

One of the cases the former Police chief, General Kale Kayihura is accused of moving 3,000 guns without the knowledge nor permission of the commander in chief, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

The said guns were moved to Kabalye Police Training School under the supervision of Frank Mwesigwa, also the former head of the institution.

According to the law, moving guns or any type of weapon(s) without knowledge of the president could be viewed as an act of war against the current government and therefore punishable by law.

The former Inspector General of Police who has been behind bars for more than a month only made his first statement on Wednesday where he denied all charges and accusations against him including the arming of Boda Boda 2010 that was led by a one Abudallah Kitatta and the death of Assistant IGP Felix Kaweesi who was assassinated in cold blood on the 17 March 2017, despite charges later being dropped due to insufficient evidence.

The longest serving IGP, Kayihura was remanded in Makindye military barracks where he has been visited by senior ranking officials on several occasion including retired Gen. Salim saleh, who all tried to speak/convince the now suspect into submission.
