Police spokesperson CP Fred Enanga has confirmed that police arrested the presidential hopeful retired Lt.Gen Henry Tumukunde On treason charges.
See full statement released by police below.

“We would like to inform the public that on the 12.03.2020, at around 7pm, a joint security task team led by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, arrested Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde for alleged Treason. His premises at Kololo were secured for further search this morning, for any additional evidence of material value.
The arrest follows his utterances in a series of radio and television interviews, which seek to foster hatred that might lead to inter-community violence, fomenting and glorifying violence in general. He in addition, calls on the support of a neighboring country to support him in removing the current leadership with or without the ballot.
He is therefore, being charged under Sections 23 (2) b and 23 (3) b, of the Penal code Act, which deals with instigating persons to invade the Republic of Uganda and inciting any persons to make a mutinous assembly.
As always our number one priority is the safety and security of all Ugandans. And we would like to thank our task teams for their swift action, upon recognizing the impact of the inflammatory and provocative rhetoric by the suspect on members of the Armed forces and the wider public.
This should also act as a deterrent to others who would like to promote views that seek to naturalize violence in our country, Uganda.
