The High court has set Monday next week January 25th to rule on whether former presidential aspirant Robert Kyagulangyi Ssentamu and his wife Barbra Itungo are in illegal detention at their home in Magere -Kasangati -Wakiso District.
This is after Kyagulanyi’s lawyers informed Justice Micheal Elubu that their client and his wife have been placed under illegal detention at their home by security operatives since Election Day on November 14th .
However, according to the affidavit sworn in by police Director of operations Edward Ochom and UPDF’s legal director Gordon Busingye, Kyagulanyi is in neither of the two security force’s custody but rather has his movements restrained.
The police director Ochom adds that there is also credible intelligence information linking Kyagulanyi to organized riots by youths hence restricting his movements at home for his personal safety.
Now the attorney general has asked court that in case it is inclined to free Kyagulanyi stringent terms such as denouncing his planned processions and following Covid 19 guidelines should be imposed.
