Former NewVision sports journalist Joseph Kabuleta has been arrested by unknown men from Lugogo, Kampala.
The men, who are believed to be security operatives, picked up Mr Kabuleta from Drew and Jacs, an entertainment centre on Friday night.
They sped off to an unknown destination. They were travelling in a private car, Registration number UBB 459D.
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said he is not aware of the arrest but promised to cross-check and get back to us.
Mr Kabuleta’s arrest is believed to be in connection with allegations of offensive communication or cyber harassment against the person of the president of Uganda.
Mr Kabuleta has recently authored articles critical of the current government, the President and the First Family.
In the latest opinion piece, which is published on his Facebook page titled ‘Kabuleta’s Weekly Rant’, he revealed about what he described as a calculated plan to introduce First Son Maj Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba on the political scene so that he eventually succeeds his father, President Museveni.
“Key sectors in government and finance are being held by old and near-senile people with no ambition while in the interim Muhoozi kids are entrenching themselves below. It is a discreet but systematic takeover,” he wrote.
“SFC is in charge of natural resources and national parks while the First Family have their fingers in every major cash-generating venture. It’s not just greed. It’s control. It’s as much about getting the money as it is about keeping it from rivals. So that by 2021, only one camp is liquid. Those who bow and kiss the hand of the new Don are rewarded with the means to live. The rest merely survive or worse,” he added.
“It is nice to see that Muhoozi’s bevy of well-paid promoters are finally earning their dimes. They must be on a mega payroll to believe that someone as dull and lifeless as him can be president. Museveni would have to put us all to sleep before that happens. Mutubalemu ku magezi.” Reads an excerpt from Kabuleta’s online post.
