The 57year old Roger was arrested with uniforms, weapons and ammunition belonging to the United States Army over the weekend from his home in Bwebajja, along Entebbe road following a tip-off from his estranged wife Lillian Kaitesi.

A subsequent search uncovered a number of US Army uniforms, guns, ammunition, and pepper spray among other military stores.
