The Director General of the Internal Security Organization (ISO), Col Kaka Bagyenda and the Attorney General have been dragged to court over unlawful confinement of Christine Mbabazi Muhoza, who claimed she was girlfriend to late AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
Through her lawyers including Ladislaus Rwakafuuzi, Mbabazi in her affidavit says she has been unlawfully kept under house arrest for close to a year now by security agencies who take her to be a potential key witness or suspect in the murder of former police spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
She accuses Col Kaka of giving directives to keep her and her children under lock and key, and wants him to produce her before a competent court of law in order to secure her release.
In her affidavit to support the application, Mbabazi claims she has been locked up in the house with her children who have now missed school for a year since September 15, 2017 and that it is now hard for her to find what to feed these children nor access medical treatment .
According to documents before court Mbabazi says she is not allowed to move outside her home in Lungujja, Lubaga division neither is she allowed to receive visitors or use internet or phones to communicate to any one.
She now wants the High Court to orders ISO to vacate her home and free her.
Mbabazi’s troubles began in October of last year when operatives attached to Internal Security Organization (ISO) reportedly sealed off her residence in Lungujja, a Kampala suburb in an attempt to arrest her.
The deployment was reported at the time to have been a measure to refrain her from leaving her house as she was allegedly a sususpect in Kaweesi’s death. She however denied knowledge of this.
At the time, Police said that it had received calls from Mbabazi claiming that armed people had held her hostage and arrested her incommunicado in her home. But upon reaching the residence, armed army officers couldn’t allow the Police officers to enter.
