Internal Affairs Minister, Gen. Jeje Odongo has admitted that Imam Sulaiman Mudenyo is in Police custody at Nalufenya detention facility in Jinja district.

Odongo was Wednesday responding to a concern raised by Waira Kiwalabye Majegere, the Bunya East Member of parliament on the disappearance of Mudenyo.

Minister refuted claims by Waila Majegere (Ind., Bunya East) that Imam Sulaiman Mudenya, arrested over the murder of Police Spokesperson AIGP Felix Kawesi, was missing from all detention facilities.

Gen. Odongo said that Imam Mudenya is being held in Nalufenya and that his file has been forwarded to the DPP for advice on his prosecution.

Hon. Majegere, however, said that family members had failed to access and visit Mudenya in Nalufenya, and were informed that he had been referred to Kireka and later to Luzira Prison.

On Tuesday, Majegere told parliament that Imam Mudenyo was arrested with his son, Kassim Mulawa from his home in Mwezi in Mayuge district on April 9th 2017.

According to the MP, Mudenyo’s son returned home forcing his family to trace for him at a place called Wembley in Buligo in Iganga district but they failed to locate him.

Deputy Speaker, Jacob Oulanyah tasked the Internal Affairs Minister to present a statement on the matter.

According to minister Odongo, Imam Mudenyo was arrested from Busia.
