Wapa daughter to oversee procurement of CCTV cameras

Must read

President Yoweri Museveni has reportedly appointed Information and Communication Technology (ICT) expert Josephine Wapakhabulo to oversee the procurement of CCTV cameras that will assist the police in curbing crime, sources have told EagleOnline.

Last year, at the vigil of the slain Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Andrew Felix Kaweesi who was gunned down along with his body guard and driver, President Museveni directed that the cameras be installed at every junction in the city.

Dr. Wapakhabulo is the substantive Executive Director on the National Oil Company (NOC) and the news of her other assignment in respect to the CCTVs comes at a time when the former Police Director of IT Amos Ngabirano, who was reportedly to oversee the procurement, was relieved of his duties.

Currently, government is grappling with the advent of sophisticated crime, following a series of murders, creating panic among the citizens.

About a three weeks ago middle-aged Susan Magara was kidnapped, tortured and killed by thugs who are still being hunted by security agencies.

And as if to prove that the criminals are sophisticated, police and telecom companies have still failed to establish the owners of the 14 sim cards that were used by Ms. Magara’s killers to demand for ransom from their five anonymous hideouts.
