Jeje Odongo Defends Continued Detention of Kayihura
The Minister of Internal Affairs Jeje Odongo says police can’t respect the 48-hour rule on former Police chief Kale Kayihura due to the nature of the case.
While briefing parliament yesterday on the security situation in the country, Odongo was tasked by Butambala County MP Muwanga Kivumbi to explain why Kayihura is still under detention, a month after he was arrested.
However Odongo said looking at the nature of the case, it is not easy to honor the rule on Kayihura but did not disclose the cases against him.
The minister also said that the country is secure following intensified security measures.
