The fate of the former Gen kale Kayihura now lies in the hands of President Yoweri Museveni, says UPDF
Security sources claim the fate of former Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura, now lies in the hands of President Yoweri Museveni, who is also the Commander in Chief of the armed forces.
These sources told The New Vision that a number of delegations including religious leaders, senior security officers, senior lawyers, legislators from western Uganda and Kisoro district in particular were trying to secure an appointment with the President.
These leaders want to negotiate pardon for Kayihura because they believe he had served his country well and with dedication.
Meanwhile, Security minister Gen. Elly Tumwine said the investigations were still going on and that once complete, they would be forwarded to the relevant office for action.
“I have not met Kayihura since he was arrested. But he is not the first general to go through this. Let us be patient. The truth will come out,” Tumwine told The New Vision
Bwiza.com understands that Kayihura could have personally met President Museveni as he wished to.
Reports say Kayihura cannot be introduced before a court of law without endorsement by Museveni.
Last week, military personnels have taken back Gen Kale Kayihura from Makindye military barracks to his home in Muyenga, the outskirts of Kampala city according to the order of Museveni.
