Gen Kale Kayihura Returns to Nairobi Hospital

Former Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura has traveled to the Kenyan Capital, Nairobi.

His family told ChimpReports on Monday morning that Kayihura “is on a small medical trip.”

The family was uncomfortable sharing more details about the trip, specifically whom Kayihura traveled with.

Kayihura’s lawyers, Kampala Associates Advocates (KAA), confirmed Kayihura’s departure.

“Yes, it is true, Kayihura is in Nairobi,” said KAA counsel, Ellison Karuhanga.

ChimpReports understands Kayihura is at Nairobi Hospital on a scheduled medical examination as a follow up on tests carried out in September.

Kayihura, who is facing charges of failure to protect war materials and abetting kidnap Makindye General Court Martial, secured bail on August 28.

In Early September, Kayihura flew to Nairobi for Medical tests.


In Nairobi, the 62-year-old former presidential military assistant was accompanied by Brigadier Ambrose Musinguzi, Chief of UPDF Medical Services.

Lawyer Karuhanga said Kayihura has never traveled to Germany ever since he was released on bail.

“Our client was never in a Germany facility. He has been in Kampala,” said Karuhanga in reference to rumours that Kayihura recently held meetings in Germany.

This comes against the backdrop of reports that charges leveled against him could be dropped by the military court due to lack of evidence.

The former IGP’s lawyers recently accused Internal Security Organisation (ISO) of concocting evidence to implicate Kayihura in the murder of former AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi.

KAA said the campaign to portray Kayihura as the mastermind behind Kaweesi’s murder “has been conducted consistently, deliberately, maliciously and on a grand and industrial scale.”

Kaweesi served as Kayihura’s personal assistant, Head of Human Resource, Commander of Kampala Metropolitan Police, Head of the Training school and Police Spokesperson.
