The Chief of Defence Forces, Gen. David Muhoozi has finally bowed down to public pressure after weeks of silence as the people grilled him for tainting the image of the UPDF by indulging in partisan politics following his alleged intimidation and abduction of the NURP leader, Moses Nkonge Kibalama. On last night’s show on the state broadcaster UBC TV, Gen. Muhoozi admitted meeting Kibalama but contends that it was out of consensus of the latter.

CDF David Muhoozi detained Kibalama in Mbale military facility

The CDF says he only surfaced upon an invite by Kibalama who sought his assistance for security as he stressed that his life was in danger at the time. “Someone got in tough and told me Kibalama requested to meet me. I asked, can’t it wait? He said Kibalama’s life was in danger. I didn’t solicit for the meeting. But why shouldn’t I meet him or any other Ugandan? I wouldn’t be drawn in dynamics of NUP,” Gen. Muhoozi stated. “I met Kibalama on matters other than NUP. He wanted assistance to be secured. He told me his life was in danger,” the CDF added.

Gen. Muhoozi’s remarks however don’t corroborate with the accusations raised by Mr. Kiblama before the honourable court last month where he lobbied for the learned judge’s hand to help him secure back his freedom. During the cross examination, Kibalama seemed to insinuate that he was under captivity. Both inside and outside the court premises, heavily armed security personnel were all waiting to drive him away. The current NUP leader, Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert said in his private chat with Kibalama, he learnt that the 58 year old was undergoing torture in Mbale where he was being detained against his will.
