Kaweesi: Museveni Still Satisfied With Gen Kayihura’s Service 

The newly appointed police spokesperson AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi has said there is nothing to write home about in relation to the alleged sacking of the Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura.

Social media was over the weekend awash with reports of an alleged reshuffle in the police force that according to the orchestrators of the message saw Gen. Kayihura being replaced by the Chief of Staff Land Forces Brig. Leopold Kyanda.

However, dosage Kaweesi said such information should at all times be treated with disregard by the public because it is not credible.

“This kind of unfounded information creates animosity and tension. It makes the police force uncomfortable. Gen Kayihura is still serving to the satisfaction of the President, erectile ” the police mouthpiece said.

“We still have one commander and the Inspector General of Police is not sacked via social media.”

Kaweesi said similar reports in regards to the police force have on several occasions been issued on social media and other sections of the mainstream media but warned this has ill motives to divide them and cause unrest.

He cited media reports of directors who petitioned President Museveni in regards to extension of their contracts but stressed this is baseless because the procedure for renewing their contracts is well stipulated in the police act.

“I want to assure you that contracts for every police director have been extended. I will have to engage you and your supervisors on this but we continue to dedicate ourselves to serving the country. We can’t be weakened by pressure from any angle that may want to make us lose focus, search ” charged Kaweesi at the police’s weekly press conference in Naguru, Kampala.

Kaweesi said police will use all avenues to find the motive behind the stories against the police force but did not rule out a legal action.

“Before we go to court we shall try to find out the reason behind the stories. We shall then be able to know whether it is a company policy of that particular media house and then take action,” he warned.
