Uganda: Lawmakers Wanted Over Nebanda Statements

Kampala — Police have heavily deployed at the home of Kampala Central MP Mohammed Nsereko.

At Nsereko's home located in Old Kampala, two anti -riot police vehicles with policemen are parked at the entrance of his home.

The Police were later joined by the anti- terrorism squad which, by press time, had started breaking into the MP's house.

Police said the MP is wanted to record a statement at the Criminal Investigation Department following utterance he and his colleagues made in connection to the death of late Butaleja MP Cerinah Nebanda. Other Mps on Police wanted list include Chris Baryomunsi and Thoedore Sekikkubo.

Police Spokesperson Judith Nabakooba explained that MPs are wanted following their allegations that the Government had eliminated Nebanda.

"We want them to give us more details over their remarks that the Government killed MP Nebanda."

Nebanda was buried in Butaleja on Sunday.

Trade minister Amelia Kyambadde, who forced her way into Nsereko's home after the Police tried to bar her, told reporters at the scene that the security personnel were not cooperative.

"I don't know why they are here. They have refused to talk to me. I want to call the Inspector General of Police to find out what this deployment is all about," she said as she drove away.

Other MPs who flocked Nsereko's home include Mike Mukula (Soroti Municilaity), Gerald Karuhanga (Youth Western) and Medard Ssegona.
