‘Missing’ Ugandan ex-spy released from police detention

Ugandan former spy Charles Rwomushana has just been released from police detention.



He was reported missing at the weekend and there was speculation about whether he was in the hands of the Police Special Investigations Unit.

But police had denied holding him

I have just spoken to Mr Rwomushana and he told me that he was picked up by plain-clothed policemen on Friday evening on his way for a talk show at a local TV station.

He says he was released this afternoon on police bail, and is being charged with libel and promotion of sectarianism.

Mr Rwomushana was held following his comments on the alleged detention and possible death of Chris Aine, the head of security for presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi.

      Maybe because the name sounds Zimbabwean, ‘Rwomushana’
