Kampala City Hall court has issued criminal summons against Rtd Gen.Henry Tumukunde due to his failure to appear in court this morning as was scheduled.

Tumukunde is also battling with unlawful possession of two guns Ak47 and a pistol and being in possession of 34 rounds of ammunitions.
The summons requiring Tumukunde to appear in court on September 23rd for mention of the case.
