KAMPALA. Former Buyende District Police Muhammad Kirumira has lauded President Museveni for digging out wrong elements from Police.
Last week, a number of top police officers, including the former Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura, were arrested.
“arresting Kayihura can solve the murders and other killings. However, there are other Kawukumi (Weavils) remaining within the Police. I doont want to sound like Iam celebrating Kayihura’s arrest,” Mr Kirumira said in an interview yesterday.
He cited corruption and ghost police officers working with criminal gangs as some of the challenges in the force. The new Police leadership under IGP Ochola and his deputy Muzeyi Sabiiti has since made several reshuffles
“I know the Police of mr. Okoth and I have no problem with it. It will be transparent. Kayihura was driving his own political agenda and he had formed dynasties. If you think iam lying, where is Kifeesi City gangs]? Where does the money collected by traffic as fines go? And who knows about crime preventers now? All these were his operations,” he said, adding that he should be hired to fight criminals
Mr Kirumira advised Gen Kayihura to plead guilty and ask for forgiveness
