The Saturday Vision Editor has been summoned by police, in respecte to a story carried by the paper on Saturday, October 28 titled: ‘Kayihura Security Beefed Up’.
According to a letter signed by Isaac Oketcho, the Editor run the story ostensibly to ‘disturb the quiet, peace and the right of privacy of Gen. Kale Kayihura, the Inspector General of Police, the Uganda Police Force’.
The summonses, described by some journalists as ‘frivolous’ were supposed to be effective today at 3.00pm. They come at a time when the police is on the spotlight, with several senior officers including Senior Commissioner of Police (SCP) Joel Aguma and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Nixon Agasirwe Karuhanga facing a raft of severe crimes ranging from subversion, murder, and kidnap.
Efforts to contact the Saturday Vision News Desk for comment were futile by press time.
