Two law firms have laid claim to being Kale Kayihura’s legal representatives: Kampala Associated Advocates and Caleb Alaka and company advocates.
Re-known City Lawyer Alaka told sections of the media over the weekend that he had been blocked from accessing Kayihura.
“We tried on Friday, they said it was a public holiday. They said we come on Saturday, yesterday, we came and they again refused. They refused and that is the truth. Yes, they refused and the whole of yesterday, we had no access to them at all. Those people are still detained illegally and I think it is very wrong.” Alaka said, according to the Uganda Radio Network.
Alaka said they will petition the High court so that Kayihura together with Col Atwooki Ndahura, former director of crime intelligence be produced in court if at all they have any cases to answer.
However before they filed their petition, another law firm, Kampala Associated Advocates (KAA) came out and said they were Kayihura’s rightful representatives.
In a statement issued on Sunday, KAA noted: “Any statement for and on his (Kayihura) behalf will be issued only by us.”
“Therefore, disregard all statements purportedly issued on behalf of Gen. Kale Kayihura.”
Elison Karuhanga, a partner at KAA, has for long been a personal lawyer for Kayihura.
