The state accuses Mulangira Kaweeea of allegedly authoring and distribution of an audio threading to kill President Museveni, his son Gen Muhoozi, Hon Nankabirwa, and a host of others which he denies.

Whisper eye sources confirmed that a lady who owns an online news publication formerly an aid in state house tipped the security over Kaweesa sharing of the audio which led to his arrest and incarceration for eight days at Kabalagala   police in violation of his human rights and contrary to article 23 of the Uganda constitution which gives police mandate to only detain a suspect for not more than 48 hours.
