The Police on Monday surrounded and searched the premises of newspapers Daily Monitor in Namuwongo and The Red Pepper offices at Namanve.

The search, sanctioned through a court order, is intended to retrieve a letter allegedly written by Gen. David Sejusa, requesting the top military brass to among others investigate allegations of the assassinations of top military officers. 

The said letter has in the recent past been the issue of discussion. In this letter, it is alleged that Gen Sejusa called upon the military high command to investigate the recent attack of Mbuya Barracks, the said assassinations of top military officers in the UPDF and the plan to move Brig. Muhoozi through the ranks at the expense of other officers. 

Gen Sejusa has, however, not denied authoring the letter that has been at the centre of a number of media persons arrests of top journalists at the Monitor. 

Patrick Mugumya, an employee of The RedPepper in Namanve earlier posted on his twitter microblog, “Loads of cops here at Red Pepper. They have search warrant. Signed by magistrate at Nakawa they want Sejusa Letter”.
