The East Kyoga Region Police Spokesperson, Michael Odongo says the chairperson will appear in court later today on charges of arson and malicious damage. He says they have been hunting for Einyu to record a statement in relation to the case filed against him early this month.

Odongo says Einyu is implicated by one of the eyewitnesses who saw him around Okello's home three times in the company of his brothers. They reportedly used petrol to torch the house after breaking the padlocks. The fire gutted all the property inside the house.
