The case in which former powerful Security Minister, Lt. Gen Henry Tumukunde, is accused of treason was today adjourned to August 22, 2020.
Lt.Gen Tumukunde, who ran into trouble after declaring intentions to challenge President Museveni for the presidency, appeared before City Hall court Grade One Magistrate Valerian Tuhimbise but had his case adjourned.
Prosecution led by Joseph Kyomuhendo argued that investigations into Lt.Gen. Tumukunde’s case are incomplete, setting out the grounds why there could not be proceedings.
Lt. Gen. Tumukunde was on March 18, 2020 arraigned in Court on charges of Treason and unlawful possession of firearms and ammunitions.
Lt. Gen Tumukunde is alleged to have made those statements while appearing on NBS Television when he allegedly called for a foreign country to help in the fight to change government.
Prosecution further alleges that on 13th March 2020, security operatives conducted a cordon and search operation at Lt. Gen. Tumukudne’s office along Impala Avenue in the reclusive suburb of Kololo and recovered firearms which the General was allegedly holding with a valid licence.
But the charges have done little to deter Gen. Tumukunde as he remains determined to fight for peaceful change in the country.
