Mityana Municipality member of parliament Francis Zaake Butebi has today been been blocked from flying out of the country for treatment.
Mr. Asuman Basalirwa the lawyer to Zaake said police at the airport informed them Zaake would not be allowed to fly out the the country unless cleared by CIID.
‘A Police officer by the name of Aloka has informed me that we need clearance from police before Hon. Zaake travels to India. Zaake’s condition cannot allow him to go to Police. If he is not cleared, he could easily die” Basalirwa said.
Zaake was scheduled to fly to India for medical treatment but his lawyers claim Airport Authorities need a letter for Police’s Director, Criminal Investigations, Ms, Grace Akullo before they can allow him to leave the country.
On Wednesday, Zaake’s family members led by Kampala City Traders Chairperson Everest Kayondo, and the Spokesperson Issa Ssekitto threatened to fly Zaake out of the country by force if they didn’t get clearance in time.
