Aronda made the remarks on Friday while meeting the Directors of Uganda Police for the first time since he was appointed to head the ministry.

The meeting took place at the new Police Headquarters, Kampala, Naguru. It was the minister’s first time to reach the Police headquarters.

Aronda’s statement comes at a time when CIID is under fire for falling short of carrying out thorough investigations in the plunder of public funds in the Office of Prime Minister and Public Service Ministry.

He highlighted the need for police to work with public hospitals to ensure that drugs are put to their intended purpose.

The Minister appreciated Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura for transforming Uganda Police from a nomadic police to a police with a fixed place of aboard.

The Minister said gone are the days when police was nomadic in nature where they would be chased from one place to another.

“In my political education teachings, I put a line between the old Uganda and the new Uganda. The old Uganda is where police where nomadic. They would be chased from one place to another but now there’s a home,” said Gen. Aronda.

The minister reiterated the need for police to keep an eye on service delivery to ensure that government funds are put to proper use. He said this can be achieved by reinforcing a service delivery monitoring mechanism.

He emphasized the importance of the East African Community and urged officers to embrace the East African integration as it will help in fighting transnational border crimes.
