Jailed former security minister Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde has expressed himself before the high court frustrations on how he is being treated in detention at Luzira prison on charges of treason and illegal possession of fire arms and ammunition.
Gen. Tumukunde while appearing via a video visual link before city hall court grade one magistrate Valerian Tuhimbise has informed court that he is being held in solitary confinement in Luzira prison.
Tumukunde has further informed court that he is not being treated like other prisoners since he has been denied access to either his family members, lawyers and personal doctor.
He has further expressed concern that he does not have any changing clothes and is forced to re appear in court dressed in the same shirt yet it is his constitutional right to get another.
Meanwhile, state has informed court that investigations into his treason case are still ongoing asking for more time. Now the magistrate has advised Tumukunde’s lawyers to apply for bail for their client and adjourned the matter to the 20th of this month.
