Kampala - The Rev. Richard Mutazindwa, the assistant RDC Rakai, who allegedly failed to act on information about the activities of the Kanungu cult, and went missing, has been arrested by the Police.

Mutazindwa was picked up from his home in Lyantonde, Kabule in Rakai by regional Police chiefs Benson Nyeko and Joel Okwir. Mutazindwa was driven in his vehicle to Masaka from where he was transferred to Kampala.

A Police spokesman, Erick Naigambi, confirmed the arrest, which was effected on March 29, a day after Mutazindwa attended a district security meeting at the district headquarters. He was put to task to explain his long absence from office and his alleged connection to the Kanungu cult.

Security officials said Mutazindwa said he did not receive any information about the cult.

Naigambi, however, said the defence was inadequate to get Mutazindwa freed. State minister for internal affairs Sarah Kiyingi said Mutazindwa would help with Police inquiry.
