KAMPALA — Military has arrested and detained Amanya Nduhura Tumukunde, a son to Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde.
This is the second son of Gen Tumukende who is also under coolers to be arrested.
Military on Friday March 13 also arrested Philips Tumukunde and other people in the general’s consultation team including Tororo North MP, Nyakecho Annet.
Amanya according to reports was plucked from their home in Kololo home near Kampala to Kabalagal Police Station where he spent the night.

Police is yet to issue any statement on why Gen Tumukunde’s sons are involved in the matter.
This website understands that Gen, according to Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga faces treason charges.
Mr. Enanga in an earlier statement on Friday said Gen. Tumukunde’s arrest follows his utterances in a series of radio and television interviews, which the police say “seek to foster hatred that might lead to inter-community violence, fomenting and glorifying violence in general”.
“He is therefore, being charged under Sections 23 (2) b and 23 (3) b, of the Penal code Act, which deals with instigating persons to invade the Republic of Uganda and inciting any persons to make a mutinous assembly.”
Gen. Tumukunde last week announced he will run for president in 2021.
