treat geneva;”>Today, Thursday, Idi Ibin Ssenkumbi, the publicist at Kampala Metropolitan Police, while speaking at the launch of a book titled “101 questions” about Police at Fairway hotel in Kampala, assured the public that they are going to charge and punish every police officer who was involved in the mistreatment of civilians at the City Hall.

“Policemen are human beings from different societies. So, on the issue of what happened at City Hall, police officers did those acts as individuals and not as a force. We have been compiling videos from various media houses to act as evidence for this case,” Ssekumbi explained.

Senkumbi further noted that very soon, “these officers are going to be charged for their individual acts”.

On this very event, a policeman refused Members of Parliament who included Hon Latif Sebagala, Hon Sebuliba Richard Mudduawulira and Hon Ken Lukyamuzi from accessing the City Hall.

This has brought a lot of condemnation from opposition politicians and human rights organisations blaming police for taking part in denying people their rights which it is mandated to protect.

It is the same issue that yesterday led to the summoning of the Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura and the minister of Internal Affairs, Gen Aronda Nyakairima by the Parliamentary Committee for human rights to appear before parliament and explain police’s excesses.
