The Uganda Police have rubbished media reports that it intends to arrest Jacqueline Mbabazi, wife to the country’s Prime Minister Mbabazi.
In a press statement issued and signed by the new force’s spokesperson, Fred Enaga, “the Police has no intentions or plans to summon or arrest Mrs. Mbabazi.”
Ugandan local media has been awash with news that the police is planning to arrest Mrs Mbabazi over leaked audio tapes that allegedly recorded Inspector General of Police, General Kale Kayihura having a conversation with his aide, Sebina Sekitoleko, and Alex Kasirivu, an NRM youth mobiliser, who painted a picture of how the Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi with the help of his wife Jacqueline are clandestinely building a strong network of allies to support his future political ambitions.
However, Enaga in his statement says the allegations are totally false ans he has urged the public to ignore the speculation.
Below is Enaga’s full statement;
There have been a number of reports in some sections of the media alleging that Police plans to arrest Mrs. Jackline Mbabazi.
We would like to categorically make it clear that the Police has no intentions or plans to summon or arrest Mrs. Mbabazi.
Those allegations are totally false and we urged the public to ignore it. Our offices are open to the media to crosscheck such information before publishing.
