MUKONO personnel officer Betty Nambooze was on Tuesday quizzed by the Police on suspicion that she incited violence and uttered seditious statements.

With her lawyer, Erias Lukwago, Nambooze was interrogated from 2:30pm to 6:00pm.
The commissioner for crime, Edison Mbiringi, declined to give the details.

He referred The New Vision to CID chief Elizabeth Kuteesa, who was not available for comment.

Sources said Nambooze was interrogated over remarks at a workshop on federalism at Lubiri in July.

The source said the statements were meant to incite the Baganda into violently demanding a federal status (federo).

The Police quoted Nambooze as saying the Baganda would not get what they wanted without fighting.

The workshop was organised by Buganda clan leaders and attended by federo agitators.
At the workshop, former justice and constitutional affairs minister Mayanja Nkangi was booed and Wakiso district LC5 chairman Ian Kyeyune roughed up.

Nambooze was convicted in 2003 on corruption charges but was later released. The Police said Nambooze also uttered seditious statements by comparing the Movement government with that of Idi Amin.

She was released on Police bond.
