KAMPALA – Police on Thursday Night arrested Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament (MP) Francis Zaake.

The information was broken by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kagulanyi alias Bobi Wine Zaake.

Bobi Wine said the youthful MP was picked from jam and bundled to a police van to Central Police Station where is being detained.

Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga confirmed MP Zaake’s arrest without giving details.

This website has learnt from sources that the MP was arrested for allegedly ‘skipping’ Police bond.

Zaake in December last year endured seven hours of interrogation by detectives from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on allegations of treason and escaping from police study following the violence in Arua Municipality by-election on August 13.

A total of 34 people including the legislators are currently facing treason charges in the Gulu Magistrates Court.

The charges followed the chaos that dominated the last day of campaigns ahead of the Arua Municipality by-election held in August.

It is alleged that Bobi Wine and his contemporaries including Zaake commanded a team of youths that obstructed president Yoweri Museveni’s motorcade and pelted stones that smashed the windscreen of one of the vehicles in his convoy.

In the aftermath, one Yasin Kawuma, a driver was shot dead.

The 27-year-old also suffered severe injuries in 2017 when armed men stormed Parliament as Opposition MPs protested against the removal of the presidential age limit from the Constitution.

At the time, he underwent treatment from the United States.
