The army has withdrawn all security details of former Security Minister Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde at his Kololo and Rukungiri homes.
Close sources to the retired army general confirmed the development to Ugandanz News Website that an order to withdraw guards was given last weekend when the Gen. Tumukunde was up-country.
“It is true all the guards have been recalled back to Bombo and we are wondering why now because he is entitled as a retired General,” The source told this website on condition of anonymity.
However, Ugandanz News Website has established that the issue at hand pitting Gen. Tumukunde and the Kampala establishment is the rumored presidential ambition he harbors to run against the incumbent Yoweri Museveni of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party in 2021.
Apparently the sophisticated army General has silently been mobilizing masses across the country and has been endorsed by some members/ generals of the historical high command who are reportedly silently reportedly opposed to the continued dominance of President Yoweri Museveni.
Ugandanz News Website can authoritatively reveal that as part of the wider plan to encounter the influential and well-networked former spymaster, there is an alleged raid to his home.
However, we couldn’t verify this information as Brig. Richard Karemire, the army Spokesperson couldn’t be reached on phone.
