Kampala. Former intelligence operative with the Internal Security Organisation Charles Rwomushana has been released four days after he was detained at the Special Investigations Division at Kireka, Wakiso District.
Police deputy spokesperson Polly Namaye yesterday confirmed Mr Rwomushana’s release saying he is free and is not under preventive arrest as some reports earlier claimed.
Mr Aine is the head of Independent presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi’s security team.
Mr Rwomushana’s friends including Mr Peter Kibazo, a television broadcast host, who visited him at his home, posted photographs on social media of armed police officers inside Mr Rwomushana’s compound.
They said Mr Rwomushana had told them he isn’t allowed to move out of his home.
However, efforts to get a comment from Mr Rwomushana were futile as his known mobile telephone number was unreachable.
At a press conference in Kampala, human rights activists said Mr Rwomushana sustained injuries during his arrest on Friday.
