The Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) has not deployed troops at the residence of the Inspector General of Police General Kale Kayihura, army spokesperson, Brigadier Richard Karemire, has said.
“Please ignore the misinformation circulating around that UPDF is deployed at the residence of the IGP. It is totally false,” Brig. Karemire said in his tweet to the public.
Reports indicate that last night the army raided the residence of the IGP in Muyenga to pick someone there.
It is important to note that over the past few days the Chieftaincy of Milkitary Intelligence (CMI) has picked up and interrogated senior police officers among them Commissioner of Police (CP) Joel Aguma, the head of the Police Standards Unit (PSU) and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Nixon Agasiirwe Karuhanga of the Special Operations.
Some of the officers under investigation are allegedly linked to the murder of Assistant Inspector General Police (AIGP) Felix Kaweesi, while others are said to have indulged in espionage.
