Kayihura warns police against giving information to sister security agencies

Must read

The Inspector General of Police General Kale Kayihura has warned his officers against revealing the force’s secrets to other sister security agencies.

In a message to all heads of units, departments and directors dated February 21, 2018, Gen. Kayihura expressed concern that of recent many police officers have been involved in giving information to various sister security agencies without authorization.

‘It has been established that police officers conspire on their own or are summoned by sister security agencies and divulge information without official authorization from the police forces’, Kayihura communicated in his message.

According to Gen. Kayihura, sharing information with other agencies not only undermines the authority of the force but also contravenes the disciplinary code of conduct and the oath of secrecy that officers swear to abide by.

“All directors, heads of department and unit commanders should ensure strict compliance to this circular,’ Gen. Kayihura wrote, warning that ‘disciplinary action will be taken against all of those involved in such acts’.

The rift between the police and other security agencies has been in the public domain, and was made worse by the recent arrest of suspected criminals like the Boda Boda 2010 ‘patron’ Abdallah Kitatta and his brother by ISO operatives.
