A Human Rights activists have dragged government to court on allegations relating to continued detention of former IGP Gen Kale Kayihura for close to two Months.
Issa Ogomba together with Sarah Rukundo a law student at Uganda Christian University dragged the Attorney General to court over the ‘unlawful’ detention of the former police chief.
The then IGP Kale Kayihura has been in detention at Mbuya Military barracks since he was picked from his Country Home Kashagama in Lyantonde district.
According to Issa Ogomba, the constitution mandates any Ugandan to sue government or an individual in case of any violation. He adds that it doesn’t require any permission from the family members to sue.
The duo now wants the High Court to declare that Kayihura’s detention is illegal and unlawful.
The duo claims government has violated the mandatory 48 hours without being produced in court.
Government has been given 14 days to file its defence relating the allegations.
