General David Tinyefuza
General David Tinyefuza General David Tinyefuza. Legislators on the Presidential Affairs committee have in a Thursday meeting summoned the Coordinator of Intelligence Services, General David Tinyefuza to explain his continued refusal to vacate the now controversial Kampala Capital City Authority House in Kololo. The General is also supposed to clarify on allegations that the house could have been sold without the authorization of KCC. General Tinyefuza will also be tasked to explain why he threatened to arrest KCCA chief Executive, Jennifer Musisi who is doing her official duty. The legislators in a meeting chaired by Mr Barnabas Tinkasimire (NRM, Buyaga) summoned General Tinyefuza to appear with the minister for the Presidency, Ms Kabakumba Masiko on Tuesday next week. The KCCA Executive Director has given General Tinyefuza up to August 2 to vacate the two storey house located on plot 2, Mabua road. But the General has since threatened to arrest her if she dare attempts to evict him from the official mayor's residence saying the house serves as the state's security interests and not his personal comfort. The house was controversially occupied by General Tinyefuza in March 2008 upon a directive of then local government minister, Maj Gen (rtd) Kahinda Otafiire.

Ten years ago, Mr Tinyefuza ran to the courts of law in the arms of senior legal practitioners hailing from Buganda after being summoned to answer for statements made to Parliament about the war in the north.He sought political cover from another arch-monarchist, the late Abu Mayanja, before returning to the fold.At the time, it did not matter whether Mr Tinyefuza had blood smeared on his hands from the war in the north. In the post ICC Statute days, he could as well be a candidate for indictment before the War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague.Mr Tinyefuza's accumulation of power outside any legal framework does not augur well for government.Mr Tinyefuza is a Member of Parliament and a civil servant at the same time [an obvious affront to the separation of powers principle and absolute prohibition on MPs holding two offices]. They offered protective custody without signing onto Mr Tinyefuza's speculative charges of terrorism and treason.
