Angry Kasese Municipality Member of Parliament Robert Centenary who spent part of the afternoon at the police station to secure their release said that Zaake had travelled to Kasese to visit him as a colleague only to get surprised that he had been arrested.
At around 8:30 pm Zaake and his colleagues were released from police detention without any charges preferred and was then escorted out of the district by the Kasese Divisional Police Commander Dickens Okello.
Centenary condemned the arrest which he said points to a possibility that security agencies could have acted on false information.
Before Zaake was driven out of the district, he said that he been cautioned never to return to Kasese but hastened to add that the intimidations and arrests will not kill his spirit to demand for a better Uganda.
Police declined to comment on the arrest.
