Former Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura has dismissed claims that he was admitted to a Kampala hospital over alcohol abuse as fake
Kayihura was last year removed from the helm of the law enforcement body and eventually detained at Makindye Military Barracks on charges related to the illegal repatriation of Rwanda refugees.
The military restricted the former presidential military assistants movements to Kampala and Wakiso.
However, Kayihura was allowed to travel far away from the city with permission from the military court.
This past weekend, reports on social media indicated that Kayihura had been hospitalized over ill health.
Speaking on behalf of Gen Kayihura on Tuesday, Kampala Associates Advocates (KAA) lawyer, Elison Karuhanga noted that the allegations doing rounds on social media and in the print media that Gen Kale Kayihura is admitted at IHK are nothing more than the product of idle imaginations.
He said that the allegations that Kayihura, 63, has “been ordered off booze”are laughable.
