According to Police spokesperson CP Fred Enanga, Tumukunde’s arrest follows his utterances in a series of radio and television interviews, which seek to foster hatred that might lead to inter-community violence, fomenting and glorifying violence in general.

In his utterances, Enanga said Tumukunde called on the support of a neighboring country to support him in removing the current leadership with or without the ballot.

Tumukunde is charged under Sections 23 (2) b and 23 (3) b, of the Penal code Act, which deals with instigating persons to invade the Republic of Uganda and inciting any persons to make a mutinous assembly.

Enanga says Police’s number one priority is the safety and security of all Ugandans, and the arrest should also act as a deterrent to others who would like to promote views that seek to naturalize violence in Uganda.
