Lawyers seek unconditional release of Tumukunde by Kenyans247(1): Thu 19, March, 2020 02:03pm
Anthony Wameli and Geoffrey Turyamusiima contend that their client has been detained beyond 48hours without being produced in court.KAMPALA - Lawyers representing embattled former Security minister Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde have petitioned Nakawa Chief Magistrate's Court seeking for his unconditional release.

Anthony Wameli and Geoffrey Turyamusiima contend that their client has been detained beyond 48hours without being produced in court contrary to article 23 of the Constitution.

They also want thirteen others including MP Annet Nyaketcho whom they claim were arrested together with him set free or produced in court if there is any charge against them.

Nakawa court is yet to announce a date when the application will be heard.

Tumukunde was arrested last Thursday in a joint security operation on allegations of treason. However, on Sunday is said to have been rushed to hospital after his health condition deteriorated.

The embattled army general, who had been hospitalized at Kololo Hospital after his arrest on Thursday last week, has been discharged from hospital and immediately driven to Rukungiri.

His home in Rukungiri has been reportedly sealed off since Sunday as security planned to do a search on the home.

The Police say they are looking for more evidence linking the general to treason and subversive activities for which the general is accused.

According to the deputy spokesperson of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Irene Nakimbugwe, Gen. Tumukunde's file may delay in their office because there is no substantive Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). It will wait until a substantive DPP is appointed by the President.
