Kalule who was arrested during the raid is being held at the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) in Kireka.

Fred Enaga, the police spokesperson told journalists on Saturday that during the raid, police seized materials from his home that included; laptops, paper work, phones, items Enaga said could be used to manufacture bombs.

Kalule was among the suspects of the 2010 twin bombs that rocked Kampala leaving scores dead. He was however exonerated due to lack of enough evidence to pin him.

It should be recalled that in 2010, Somali islamist group Al-Shabaab suicide bombers hit Kampala on July 11, 2010 killing 74 people watching the World Cup final at two different venues.

Enaga added that the police had been following Kalule’s movements since then.

  1. U cannot trust the information given out by police. These are the people who frame cases every against innocent Ugandans. This guy arrested may be working with Besigye or Lukwango and they think of ways how to punish him. It has worked. Now wait for NRM youths who work with Mbabazi will be caught readyhanded trying to blow up Kyandondo NRM hqtrs.
