david_tinyefuza_769337005 geneva;”>The letter was discovered by detectives during a search at Tinyefuza’s office in Ntinda, viagra approved Kampala on May 10 in an operation commanded by Deputy Director of Criminal Investigations, cheap Geoffrey Musana.

Impeccable sources in government said the secretary who typed Tinyefuza’s letter was quizzed for several hours by Police.

The computer on which the letter was typed was also confiscated by Police as part of the investigations.

Contacted, Musana said he was not at liberty to discuss “evidence in our possession with the media.”

“I really cannot comment on that matter. I cannot discuss evidence at this stage,” he emphasized.

Police spokesperson Judith Nabakooba could not comment on the saga, saying she was “yet to be briefed.”

The revelations could put police on the spot considering that their main aim of raiding and searching Red Pepper and Daily Monitor Publications’ premises were based on searching for Sejusa’s letter addressed to ISO Director Ronnie Balya.

Speaking to press during the recent decoration ceremony of promoted army officers, Police boss Gen Kale Kayihura said the law enforcement unit’s personnel would not quit Red Pepper and Monitor headquarters until they obtained Sejusa’s letter.

“Why don’t you (media) give us the letter? Why?” wondered Kayihura.

Police had earlier sought a search warrant from Nakawa Court before taking over the premises.

A source said Police went ahead to search media houses “as part of the wider investigations in the saga.”

Confronted with facts, Uganda Media Centre (UMC) boss Ofwono Opondo said Police was concerned after Sejusa’s letter leaked to the media before reaching its intended addressees.

“The ISO director and former Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Aronda Nyakairima to whom the letter is purportedly addressed did not receive it. And Monitor reported that they had the letter so they had to be asked questions during the investigation.”

Red Pepper Director Arinaitwe Rugyendo was recently quoted by the media as saying the newspaper had lost over shs500m.

The Daily Monitor Publications was losing Shs120m per day during the 11-day police siege.

In the missive, Sejusa called for an investigation into reports that army officers including himself, were targeted for assassination for opposing the idea of Brig Kainerugaba Muhoozi succeeding his father, President Yoweri Museveni.

The army has since denied the existence of the “Muhoozi Project” and blasted Sejusa for making “divisive remarks” and spreading harmful propaganda in the wrong forum.
