According to Deputy Police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, the relatives managed to contact Police leading to an operation that netted Kakaire.

“We laid a trap and we arrested the OC. A crime preventer identified as Irana Yasin Kinobe, who received the money from the relatives of Wandago, was also arrested,” said Onyango on Tuesday.

The suspects are currently detained at Police Special Investigations Unit in Kampala “for further management.”

“We carried out a search and money was recovered and exhibited. We are going to prefer a charge of corruptly soliciting for gratifications vide section 2 (a) of the Anti-Corruption Act 2009,” said Onyango.

The arrest followed the formation of a committee by Police boss, Gen Kale Kayihura to manhunt for officers who are still engaged in corrupt tendencies.

“This time we shall even arrest the givers of the bribe,” said Onyango.

Police is considered among the most corrupt institutions in the country. But Kayihura recently pledged to crackdown on the vice.
