Kampala - Ugandan police are occupying a Kampala daily's
premises for a ninth straight day amid growing outrage over the government's
seizure of the newspaper that published an army general's concerns about a
secret plot for the president's son to succeed his father.
Police chief General Kale Kayihura told reporters late
on Monday that they would leave the Daily Monitor's premises only after getting a
copy of the letter in which General David Sejusa urged the internal security
service to investigate reports that those opposed to the political rise of
President Yoweri Museveni's son risk assassination.
The newspaper has resisted efforts to give a copy of the
letter to the police.
A lawyer for Sejusa says his client, who is travelling in
London, doesn't plan to return home anytime soon.
