Opposition Democratic Party (DP) has condemned the reappointment of the Inspector General of Police, buy http://consolibyte.com/scripts/build/build_20131019/quickbooks.php Gen Kale Kayihura whose reappointment was recently approved by parliament.

Despite the continued efforts by the main stream opposition in the country to failure Kayihura’s reappointment, last week, the parliament appointments committee approved him as suitable for the post for a third term.

Uganda Young Democrats (UYD) president, Dr Gerald Siranda has told journalists during the party’s weekly press briefing that the general is not fit to serve the third term since his last two terms have been characterized with constant killing of civilians without any report released.

“There has been increased murder and brutal killing of innocent civilians not forgetting the constant fires and the country but these have all never been accounted for,” Siranda assured the press.

Siranda said this portrays that the police during Kayihura’s time has failed to account, fight and hence reduce crime in the country.

He added that many bribery and corruption cases have never been investigated thoroughly hence a few culprits have been brought to book.

Siranda went ahead and accused Kayihura for the poor social welfare of police officers which include poor feeding, poor accommodation and delayed peanut salaries.

“The last two terms of Kayihura’s reign have been full of militarization of police and training people without recruiting them in the force which has increased criminals in the country.”

Parliament’s Appointments Committee last thursday vetted Police Chief Gen Kale Kayihura whose five-year contract was this year renewed by President Museveni, who maintains the police boss is a “hardworking and loyal” officer.

Kayihura, who is the first police chief in Uganda’s history to be elevated to the rank of General, was also endorsed for another term by the Police Authority – the highest decision-making organ of the institution.

The IGP, who has served since November 2005, told the Police Authority in a letter that during his new term he will “acquire a critical mass of personnel and variety of equipment to build a modern and effective institution … to build modern and effective policing systems.”

The IGP’s current term expires on November 10.

Police are yet to see a letter from the Minister for Ethics, viagra 40mg http://clasharama.com/wp-includes/class-wp-list-util.php Fr Simon Lokodo ordering the law enforcement body to investigate singer Desire Luzinda following the leakage of her private photographs on the internet.

The pictures which were published last weekend have since touched off a social media firestorm, page http://deltaalphapihonorsociety.org/wp-includes/bookmark.php with many condemning Desire’s ex-lover Franklin of betraying her trust.

Lokodo was Tuesday quoted by the media as saying he had “asked the police to investigate, stuff arrest, lockup and also isolate singer Desire Luzinda over leaked pictures on social media.”

The minister who is known for making controversial statements, further said Luzinda “has broken the anti-pornography law” by “exposing her nudity on Facebook.”

However, Police publicist, Fred Enanga told Chimpreports that “we have not seen any correspondence from the minister.”

He added: “We have several departments tasked with handling such cases such as Gender-based violence and Cyber and Electronics section. Where did he send the letter asking us to investigate this matter?”

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango was also unaware about Lokodo’s directive.

It is suspected Lokodo could have made populist remarks in the wake of the scandal to show he is cracking down on immorality.

It is also unlikely that Luzinda could be held responsible for a crime committed by her jilted lover Franklin who is thought to be staying in Nigeria.

Enanga, however, maintains police “will help to identify the person who leaked Luzinda’s photos because this contravenes our laws.”

Peter Magelah, a researcher and lawyer, says, “sharing of obscene publications is illegal in Uganda and it does not matter the purpose.”

The lawyer cites the Penal Code Section 166 which punishes “traffic and distribution of obscene materials by way of trade or for purposes of distribution (sharing on social media is distribution).”

Section 166(d) provides that a person who “advertises or makes known by any means with a view to assisting the circulation of, or traffic in, any such matters …” which Magelah says is very broad and can affect any form of sharing and discussion of the matter.

The law provides that the “circulation of, or traffic in, any such matters or things, that a person is engaged in any of the acts referred to in this section, or advertises or makes known how, or from whom, any such matters or things can be procured either directly or indirectly; or publicly exhibits any indecent show or performance or any show or performance tending to corrupt morals, commits a misdemeanour and is liable to imprisonment for two years or to a fine of two thousand shillings.”

President Museveni has described the fallen Kabale businesswoman, discount http://claude-nicaud.com/new/wp-includes/random_compat/cast_to_int.php Mauda Buhaburwa as a shining star who was not a pretender, try http://ciencialili.org/libraries/gantry/facets/menu/gantrymenu.class.php but a person who had a genuine personality with open methods of work.

The Premier said she was a role model in Kabale and many people have excelled in life because of her.

“Let us emulate her example by being genuine and open like she did to build a better community for the benefit of all of us,” said Rugunda.

The Premier said all politicians in the area ensured that they had her support to succeed, adding that although she was not an elected leader, she was a leading opinion leader in Kabale.

All speakers described the late Mauda as God fearing, caring, hardworking, good mother and wife who loved the church and instilled in her children strong Christian values.

Rev.Onesmus Asiimwe in his sermon called upon the people of God to realise that life is not permanent on earth and that death is a reality we must accept.

He said the only sure way to live a meaningful life on earth in preparation for eternal life is to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Service was also attended among others by the Chief of Defence Forces, Gen. Katumba Wamala and the Chancellor, Makerere University, Prof. Mondo Kagonyera.

Mauda is daughter of a prominent family of Michael Mukombe and Esteri Kente in Kabale Municipality. The 74 year old mother of 5 children passed away on Monday at Mulago Heart institute due to cardiac respiratory failure.

She will be buried on Thursday in Kabale after another funeral service at All Saints Church Kabale.
