President has continued to mount on former police chief General Kale Kayihura who was early this year sacked by president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
Kayihura along with aides and other associates were arrested and charged in connection to crime committed while holding the very powerful position in the country.
Some other allies of Kayihura have however, disappeared without trace forcing government to hunt for them so that they can face charges related to crimes committed.
The state prosecutor has told court that the Police have intensified the hunt for Assistant Commissioner of Police Siraje Bakaleke, who is accused of kidnap and fraud involving sh1.5bn.
Harriet Angom, on Friday told the Anti-Corruption Court that, the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) wrote to Uganda Police Interpol and the internal affairs ministry, which indicated to her that the hunt for Bakaleke is still going on.
“I am still waiting for answers from Interpol and the internal affairs ministry about Bakaleke, who is still missing. However, you can extend Bakaleke’s warrant of arrest and issue criminal summons for those who are not present in court,” she requested.
Although the case was coming up for mention, Angom notified court that investigations into the matter were complete, but the trial is being delayed by Bakaleke. This prompted the magistrate to issue an arrest warrant against Bakaleke, before adjourning the case to January 14, next year for mention.
It is important to note that, this is the fourth time the case has been adjourned due to Bakaleke absence who have absconded from duty after learning that he is in trouble.
