Security forces have Tuesday evening stormed several hotels in Lyantonde along Masaka-Mbarara road, Chimp Corps report.
The security personnel were deployed in military vehicles and instructed to search Court Yard and Sky Blue Hotels.
“They put all staff at the hotels under arrest before checking all rooms,” said an official who preferred anonymity to speak freely.
It remains unclear whom security were looking for though reports indicate former Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura was the main target.
Defence Spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire could not comment on this startling development.
Kayihura has in recent months been holed up at his farm in Lyantonde.
“I am busy with farming,” said Kayihura when contacted by ChimpReports last week.
As of Tuesday night, some reports showed that soldiers had been spotted near the General’s farm but we couldn’t independently substantiate these claims.
