Gen Caleb Akandwanaho aka Salim Saleh met the former Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura, in detention at Makindye Military Barracks in Kampala.
Gen Saleh, who is President Museveni’s brother and presidential adviser on Defence Affairs, met Gen Kayihura on Tuesday last week but it was kept under wraps. What the two Generals discussed was not readily established, Dailmonitor has learnt
However, security sources said during the meeting, Gen Saleh asked Gen Kayihura to explain his alleged links with a “neighbouring state” and the spate of crimes, especially killings and kidnaps that surged to epidemic proportions in the country during his reign as police chief.
This information could not be independently verified as no other security official was willing to speak on the matter.
Sources also said the Security minister, Gen Elly Tumwine, and the Chief of Military Intelligence, Brig Abel Kandiho, had also met Gen Kayihura at Makindye before Gen Saleh went there.
The sources said Gen Kayihura had refused to talk to or be interrogated by junior army officers.
Daily Monitor was unable to get a comment from Gen Saleh as he did not answer our repeated calls and text messages to his cellular phone yesterday.
Gen Kayihura is currently detained at the residence of the commandant of Military Police at Makindye army barracks.
He was arrested from his country home in Kashagama in Lyantonde District on June 13.
The army spokesperson, Brig Richard Karemire, refused to comment on why Gen Kayihura has spent over two weeks in detention without trial.
