The embattled army Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde's home in Rukungiri has been searched as the police look for more evidence linking him to treason and subversive activities for which the general is accused.

His home in Buyanja sub-county,  Rukungiri has been reportedly sealed off since Sunday.

The general was on Sunday hospitalized at Kololo Hospital after his arrest on Thursday last week. He declined to go to Rukungiri saying he was still feeling unwell and wanted further treatment at Nakasero hospital.

His brother Arthur Kiiza, Ronald Komakech, John Manyala and another an unidentified person were on Tuesday taken to CMI for further interrogation.

His lawyers Anthony Wameli and Geoffrey Turyamusiima insist that his case can't stand because police have failed to get reliable evidence.

According to the deputy spokesperson of the DPP, Irene Nakimbugwe, Gen. Tumukunde's file may delay in there office because there is no substantive DPP. It will wait until a substantive DPP is appointed by the President.

The former DPP, Mike Chibita, who had held the position since 2013, was in December 2019 appointed, with two others, Justices of the Supreme Court, which left the DPP position vacant.
