American National Taken to Nalufenya

Police has transferred the American citizen who was over the weekend arrested with an assortment of military weapons to Nalufenya Detention Facility located on the banks of River Nile in Jinja district.

Paul Mathias Rogers, 58, was last week reported at Kajjansi police station by his Ugandan wife identified as Lillian Kaitesi, who accused him of domestic violence and possession of military stores at their residence in Bwebajja, Mawani Zone along Entebbe Road.

Police swung in action Saturday and arrested Rogers in an operation in which it recovered shocking military equipment including American army fatigues.

Emilian Kayima, the police spokesperson told journalists at Central Police Station in Kampala on Monday that the suspected American national has been transferred to Nalufenya, adding that “It’s not a simple matter.”

He said that police was currently doing interrogating Rogers.

The suspect was last year in March arrested by security at Entebbe Airport as he was coming into the country with a rifle.

But the file that was open against him was later “put aside” at the advice of the resident state attorney, according to Kayima, who said Rogers was allowed to be in possession of a firearm from his country.

“We have resurrected the file and we want to find out details,” Kayima added.


The police publicist also told journalists that new cases would be opened against this American national who also doubles as an Ex-American commando when the investigations are done.

Some of the things police wants to know is he was able to get cleared into the country with the weapons.

The suspect is also accused of torture and domestic violence by his Ugandan wife, with whom they have on child.
