In short
At around 7:30am, residents say they saw a car which belonged to Gen. Ssejusa's late father turn into the driveway at his home located in Nkoma village, Lugusuulu Sub County. Gen Sujusa got out of the car with two of his relatives.

The former coordinator of Intelligence Services who fled the country after falling out with Yoweri Museveni's government has arrived in his country home in Sembabule District.
Neighbours tell URN that they witnessed General David Sejusa arrive at his home in Nkome village, Sembabule district at 7:30am, Sunday.

By 9am this morning, the General was seen inspecting and spraying his cattle.
Fred Karahure, the Lugusuulu Sub County LC3 Chairperson told URN that he has personally seen the general in his farm and he looked unbothered by the presence of curious people around his home and went on with his duties of inspecting his animals.

Karahure also says he did not see any security personnel at Sejusa's home.
Sejusa, formerly known as Tinyefuza, fled the country on April 29th 2013 after drafting a letter that claimed his life and that of several top army officials was in danger for opposing the alleged "Muhoozi project" that would seen the first son replace his father, Yoweri Museveni.
 In the letter he called for an investigation into the claims.
After a year and half in self-imposed exile in the United Kingdom, Gen. Sejusa returned to Uganda Sunday morning aboard a British Airways flight.
His Lawyer Ladislaus Rwakafuuzi, two of his relatives and ISO Boss Ronnie Balya received him at the airport.
Rwakafuuzi says Ssejusa arrived at 3:14am. He says there was no incident at Entebbe airport. He explains that after checking in, he drove straight to his home in Sembabule with a few of his relatives.

There are also reports that Gen Sejusa came back on the same plane with Sam Kuteesa, the President of United Nations.

At around 7:30am, residents of Nkoma village where Sejusa country home is located, say they saw a blue car which belonged to Gen. Sejusa's late father arriving at his home. The residents say they saw him get out of his car with two relatives.

Eyewitnesses say on arrival to Nkoma village, he first went to his farm and inspected the washing and spraying of his cows.

Robert Walugembe, the Sembabule District Police Commander told Uganda Radio Network that they have not deployed because they are not bothered about him.
