Following the arrest of Ugandan rebel leader, Jamil Mukulu over treason and murder, his family members and close friends continue to live in fear.
After remarkably evading capture for more than a decade, Mukulu was arrested in 2015 Tanzania.
Mukulu was alleged to be the head of the Muslim rebel group, Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), believed to have been operating between eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda since the 1990s.
The Ugandan government accused the ADF of being responsible for the killings of Muslim clerics in 2014, when four clerics went missing in Kampala after being kidnapped by unidentified men.
Since his capture in 2015, Mukulu along with his co-accused Mohamed Matovu and Omar Abdallah had been detained at Nalufenya Special Operations Command Centre in Jinja where they claimed to be subjected to torture.
Mukulu’s family has lodged a complaint at Police under claims that their movements are closely monitored and live under fear of kidnap. They say that the security organs wrongly believe that the family could be continuing with Jamil Mukulu’s works as he languishes in jail and awaits trial.
Through their lawyers from Kasirivu and Company advocates they have lodged a complaint to ensure the family has safe custody.
We have learnt that Sandra Nansasi 29, a business woman is a prime suspect who is wanted by security to corroborate some claims that she is providing support to the day to day running of ADF activities and is recruiting youths into the rebel activity.
