Dr Lawrence Muganga

Uganda : university teacher arrested in espionage investigation

Ugandan security forces are holding Dr Lawrence Muganga, a Rwandan descent over allegations of espionage and illegally staying in the country, army spokesperson Brig-Gen Flavia Byekwaso has said.

Dr Lawrence Muganga, who is the vice-chancellor of the privately owned Victoria University, was picked up by plain-clothed officers from his office in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, on Thursday afternoon.

Relations between Uganda and Rwanda are sometimes strained as they accuse each other of meddling in each other’s affairs.
