Police summons Gen. Tumukunde over meeting veterans

Gen. Tumukunde.

Police has summoned former Security Minister and now presidential aspirant Gen. Henry Tumukunde over his ‘meeting’ with veterans.

In a letter dated August 18 addressed to Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde, the Directorate of Criminal Investigation says they are probing allegations that the retired spy master has been meeting veterans.

“The Directorate of Criminal Investigations is investigating allegations to the effect that on a number of occasions at your office and residence both in Kololo and other locations within the country, you held meetings with army veterans discussing issues related to politics. Your actions if true contravenes section of the 1995 constitution and the UPDF Act.” reads CID Grace Akullo’s letter.

She further added “Pursuant to section 27A of the police Act as amended, you are summoned to appear at CID headquarters on August 19 at 1400 hours”

The summons come just hours after Gen. Tumukunde’s meeting in Njeru town in Buikwe were disrupted by police on allegations that he hadn’t observed the #Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). However, Tumukunde insists police are using the #Covid-19 guidelines and Public Management Order Act to disperse and disrupt meetings of political opponents of the regime.

Just last week, police in Nansana Municipality in Wakiso district arrested his coordinators who had gathered for a meeting and have since been remanded to Kitala prisons.

The opposition and more so retired Col.Kizza Besigye who has contested against President Yoweri Museveni in the previous elections has always accused Mr. Museveni of using state apparatus like army and police to harass his political opponents and this seem to be the tactic the state is employing on Gen. Tumukunde who is considered an insider having served the regime in sensitive and key positions.
