Police have said they expect Mr David Lewis Rubongoya, the National Unity Platform (NUP) Secretary General to report back to Nateete Police station for further management of his case.
Police spokesman Fred Enanga told this website on Thursday morning that Rubongoya is expected to report either at the Nateete station or to Omoro police which is taking over the matter.
Mr Rubongoya was arrested on Wednesday afternoon and detained for hours at the station on charges of threating violence.
The NUP SG and his driver Gordon Agaba with whom he was arrested, are accused of threatening violence against Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng, during last month’s parliamentary by-elections in Omoro district.
In the evening hours, Mr Rubongoya was released on Police Bond amid pressure from the opposition party leaders, several of whom camped at the police station.
Police and the army deployed around the station as the news of his arrest started spreading on social media.
Enanga says as part of his release condition, Mr Rubongoya is expected to report to police with his lawyers as investigations carry on.
“The Kampala Metropolitan Police together with that of Aswa are still harmonizing on how to handle that case; so for Mr Rubongoya, he is expected today or tomorrow to either report to Nateete to be transported to Omoro or he can travel directly with his lawyers,” Enanga said.
NUP Spokesperson Joel Senyonyi said the charges brought against their secretary general were “tramped up”
“What they say he did, we did it all together, Rubongoya was not alone in Omoro, we all travelled with hi; so they should arrest all of us,” Senyonyi said.
