BREAKING: Ugandan Arrested In US Over Robbery

Turinawe was picked moments after addressing a press conference at Col. Kizza Besigye’s home. We are told cops who were in the neighbourhood had not recognised her.

It took hours to take notice. Court in Nakawa last Tuesday issued a warrant of arrest for Turinawe for plotting to overthrow government.

According to police, information pills the FDC Women League boss convened a meeting at IPC offices along Katonga Road in Nakasero in which she told thugs from Kisseka market to use stones to stop traffic and cause damage to property.

The IGP subsequently released audio clips pinning Turinawe for indulging in subversive activities. In one of them, this web she says opposition intends to create a situation for police and army to join and overthrow President Yoweri Museveni.

Turinawe has since asserted she has not been in hiding as alleged by police. Opposition lawyer Ladislaus Rwakafuzi says treason charges slapped against Turinawe are far-fetched since the accused had no means of using force to cause regime change as asserted by police.

Turinawe is detained at Kasangati Police Station awaiting trial tomorrow.
