Ugandan Ex-Spy Chief Arrested for Illegal Gathering in Capital

Ugandan police arrested former intelligence chief David Sejusa after he began an unlawful procession in the capital, Kampala, a spokesman said.

Authorities will consider whether to charge Sejusa in court or release him on bond, police spokesman Fred Enanga said by phone from the city. The ex-spy head was recording a statement and “mobilizing members of the public for his procession,” Enanga said.

Sejusa fell out with President Yoweri Museveni and left the country in May 2013 after he accused the Ugandan leader of grooming his son as his successor, a charge denied by the presidency. He returned from the U.K. in December.
