Police in Kabale have in detention a man accused of continuously impersonating a police officer.
Fazil Kiwanuka, in his mid-40s is said to have for a long time been masquerading as a police officer in Kabale Municipality.
Elly Maate, the Kigezi Regional Police Spokesperson, says Kiwanuka’s origin is not clear since he has not cooperated with police in information compilation.
“He has been around town deceiving people that he is attached to Kamuli Police Station but when we arrested him, he could not explain his position,” said Maate.
However, when asked by reporters, Kiwanuka said he has been a construction engineer operating in Kabale Municipality since 2012 and has never impersonated a police officer.
“I want whoever claims to have heard me saying that I am a police officer to bring the proof,” said Kiwanuka.
