Nakalema told journalists that on searching his car after his arrest, the police established that he was escaping with two women and a baby.
Nakalema stated during a press conference that on interrogation, it was established that one of the women was Ssemanda’s wife, Bennah Namisinga and her elder sister, Maggie Kayima alias Nabbi Omukazi.
