Ms Byanyima, was summoned for questioning and later record a statement over allegations of promoting sectarianism and incitement of violence. However she could not make it due to “other commitments”.
“She (Byanyima) gave a sound reason, she did not snub, and we shall wait for her tomorrow as she promised,” Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Emilian Kayima said.
Ms Edith Byanyima is alleged to have made sectarian statement in an interview with a local online media accusing people of a certain tribe of being behind the death of the father of Joseph and Matthew Kanyamunyu.
In a letter addressed to Ms Byanyima, the acting deputy director Special Investigations Division, Mr Henry Mugumya ordered Ms Byanyima to report in the morning for interrogation.
