Former Police Chief Kale Kayihura who is currently under detention in Makindye Army Barracks has only a few people who can get access to him.But undisclosed sources close to the military detention center have disclosed how the Former Police Chief’s small house & Lifestyle  consists.

While all people thought the General would be kept in mansion under arrest but its instead the opposite as he is being kept in one of the dilapidated cells at the Makindye Military barracks.

Information spilling through one of the People who have had a  visit to  Kayihura have been able to tell out a little about the situation.

Here he goes

“Kayihura is detained in a space that is about 8 metres in length and approximately 4.5 metres in width.

This space has two tiny bedroom spaces which cannot fit even a six feet by three feet bed.

He occupies one bedroom while in the other, there is a mat which he reportedly uses for exercises and stretching every morning.

The room is well illuminated with brand new yellow curtains.

Adjoining the two bedroom spaces is tiled washroom and next to it is a kitchen containing a small cupboard that is roughly two metres high.

At the exit of the kitchen, is an entrance to a small sitting room with simple furnishings that are not overstuffed.

The floor of the house is textured red.

The sitting room from where Kayihura entertains visitors  has two single chairs and one double.

It also contains a small fridge (which is stuffed with only mineral water). Above the fridge is a Samsung Flatscreen TV, which according to one of the visitors is about 18 inches. The TV is always (and only) tuned to CNN.


Kayihura is the only occupant in the house which is tightly guarded by  several guards,During the day, Kayihura spends most of his time outside the house, on the “out of shape” veranda, under the watchful eye of the guards.

He is reading two books: Capital in the 21st century by Thomas Piketty and The Silk Roads, a book written by Peter Frankopan.

Kayihura’s Feeding

According to the visitor, Kayihura eats lunch that is  served only by his family members, Angela Kayihura the wife, or his daughter.


Kayihura’s personal phones were confiscated on the orders of  President Museveni so he has not used them since he was brought to Makindye barracks.

The barracks has since given Kayihura a phone to use but he can only receive calls, he is unable to make any.

And even when he receives phone calls, he speaks in the presence of a guard.

In the event that he needs to talk to family members or his lawyers, Kayihura channels the request through the commandant, Military Police Col. William Bainomugisha who either grants or turns down the request.
