price sans-serif; color: #222222;”>According to the available information, ed people reported to Professional Standards Unit, a unit that monitors police work in relation with the public, accusing Kirumira of taking the said bribe.

Police then arrest and detained for several hours at Nsambya Police Barracks for several hours before giving him a bond.

Police heard that Kirumira and the complainants had agreed that a fee of Shs 3m be given to him but they first raised Shs 2.5m and when he called for his balance, they recorded him.

Apparently, the complainants had only Shs 200,000 which Kirumira directed that they forward on his Warid phone number.

“The voice recording and transactions from Warid, implicated him asking for the money, but he claims this was not money meant for him but for the person who had grievances with these people,” Patrick Onyango, the Police Spokesperson Kampala Metropolitan said in the weekly press briefing at Central Police Station today.

Onyango further observed that Kirumira is a hardworking and dedicated police officer, so they are investigating the cause and if found guilty, he will be dealt with.

“If we find there was an element of bribery in this, he will be taken to court, but if we find that it was malice, he will be returned to his position and those who may have tried to tarnish his name will be punished,” Onyango concluded.
