“We have cautioned him and many others on a number of occasions but he has not heeded to the warning. ”
Kamagu has in past been arrested on a number of occasions and released under unclear circumstances.
The police mouthpiece however warned journalists to always respect the law .
Kamagu’s arrest comes barely a fortnight when New Vision investigative journalist Charles Etukuri was kidnapped by unknown people.
According to his workmates, men dressed in army uniforms brandishing guns arrested Etukuri before taking off with him to an unknown destination
It is suspected that Etukuri is being held in a safe house in the areas of Kyengera.
Etukuri’s troubles allegedly stem from a story he wrote in Sunday Vision of February 11 regarding the death of a Finnish national in a hotel where he implicated some security agencies.
