Police have arrested two sons of Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde, the former Minister for Security, who two days ago, was arrested by a combination of army and police operatives.
Multiple sources on Sunday told Daily Monitor that Mr. Philip Tumukunde and Mr. Amanya Ndahura Tumukunde were on Saturday night picked from their home in Kololo and taken to Jinja Road Police Station where they are detained.
“The police came in and arrested them and took them to different police stations at about 1 pm on Saturday. Family members have not been given chance to meet access them and we don’t know whether they will be produced in court,” a source who asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the matter, said.
Police spokesperson, Mr. Fred Enanga said on Sunday that they are holding one person on charges of treason while the rest face charges of obstructing arrest.
“We are following up on the matter and our team is examining their statements. They will be produced in court after the process. Among the 15 are 11 men and four women,” Mr. Enanga said.
At about 7 pm on Thursday, a joint team of military and police operatives raided Gen Tumukunde’s office in Kololo, Kampala.
