Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander Andrew Felix Kaweesi Tuesday morning confirmed the IGP’s intention to meet with Kirumira over some ‘serious allegations he made’.

“There are some things he said in the media that we felt were uncalled for and the IGP needs to have a word with him,” he told press in Nakasero.

Kaweesi further noted, he is a powerful and vibrant man who loves to work, but the [Police] institution has laid down structures and procedures through which a police officer can lodge a complaint.

“So we don’t want to start behaving like politicians, the way he has been over the past days in the media.”

Kirumira faces up to 10 charges among others, of extortion of money from complainants, but he insists he’s being framed.

He was summarily detained at Nsambya Police Barracks and released on police bond before being ordered back to work earlier this month.

His case has been differed to the Police Legal department from the Profession Standards Unit, which he accused of being biased and filled with friends of the people he investigated.

He was recently asked to step out of office for two weeks, as the legal team finalises their report findings from which his fate will be determined.

In the meantime Kaweesi said Kirumira was also expected to report regularly to the IGP’s office for Counselling and guidance.
