The Uganda Police Force says it has received allegations of armed people in the home of Mr. Yokasi Bihande, husband to Hon. Winnie Kiiza, former Leader of Opposition in parliament.
This was Friday September 21, 2018. The Regional Police Command, Rwenzori East quickly responded and visited the home.
Unfortunately, Mr. Bihande was reported in the house, according to a statement by Police spokesperson, Emilian Kayima.
Last evening, Sunday September 23rd, 2018, similar allegations were made by Hon. Winnie Kiiza, alleging military presence at their home.
Again, the police rushed there and found no military presence there. There was no one home.
The Regional Police headquarters called Mr. Bihande and he declined to speak to the Police done earlier.
“This left Police doubting the authenticity of the allegations. We spoke with some domestic workers and neighbours about these issues and they denied knowledge of any military presence,” Kayima said.
“As a result, we have taken a stand to open a General Enquiry File (GEF) to investigate these allegations. Its being handled by the regional team at Rwenzori East.”
He added: “Leaders, must at all times cooperate with security agencies to solve matters that bring about insecurity.”
According to family, Kiiza is being hounded over a case Rwenzori MPs filed in the International Criminal Court [ICC] against President Museveni and UPDF Land Forces Commander, Maj Gen Peter Elwelu, over Kasese massacres.
The MPs involved in the case say they have been receiving death threats.
