Mr Rukirabashaija was arrested last year on December 28 and he has since been in detention without access to his lawyers or family.

On January 4, Makindye Chief Magistrate Court, Grade One Magistrate Irene Nambatya ruled: “It is hereby ordered that the applicant be unconditionally released from police custody. Every police officer should comply with the above order”.

Kakwenza’s wife has gone further to sue the Attorney General, Police IGP, and Gen Muhoozi saying that her husband was brought home during a house search with his pants stained with blood.

The arrest of Kakwenza came after his verbal attack on General Muhoozi Kainerugaba whom he termed as a drunkard, weak, lazy and unfit to succeed his father as President of Uganda.
