After their arrest, they were then taken to CMI headquarters in Mbuya for interrogation before being distributed to different detention centres.
Police, on the other hand, are still following the different information given by informants as well as tips from the more that 20 witness statements recorded after the assassination.
However, information from the investigators shows that all the leads that have been pursued thus far, have hit a dead end bringing the investigations back to step one.
Prior to his shooting, Kirumira had complained to police that people were trailing him and threatening his life, a complaint that was ignored.
He had spent a better part of his time in police, complaining against the alleged criminality by the operatives of the Flying Squad Unit and other police officers whom he claimed to have incriminating evidence against.
