Mukono. The Inspector General of Police has vowed to replace lazy police officers, saying they are tainting the image of the police.
Gen Kale Kayihura warned that officers who remain seated in offices instead of reaching out to the communities will never be promoted.
“I am going to replace weak officers with the hard working ones than paying people who just read newspapers in offices,” Gen Kayihura said in Mukono last Friday. He was launching the Kampala Metropolitan Central Police Station that will soon be set up in the area.
The police chief added that he has decided to put Mukono, Wakiso and Entebbe under one commander for easy management. They were originally under Kampala.
“We want to have security in Kampala and its surroundings and that’s why we have come up with a new policing,” Gen Kayihura said.
He also noted that crime rate in Mukono District has reduced after reshuffling some commanders.
Gen Kayihura said the Force will partner with churches and Mosques to sensitise people against drug abuse and drunkenness.
“Drunkenness is not a crime but it has become a problem in Uganda as it leads to domestic violence, murder, defilement and others,” he said.
The police boss also emphasised that he does not work for salary but for the government and urged the officers to emulate him. He appealed to officers to be disciplined and have good relationship with the communities.Source Daily Monitor.
