Gen Kayihura Confronts Traffic Corruption Monster

The Uganda Police Force have named at least 103 traffic officers who have been put under investigation over alleged acts of corruption, this http://davescheapbikes.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sal/class.json-api-site-jetpack-base.php Chimp Corps report.

Deputy Police spokesperson, http://centruldedic.ro/wp-includes/class-wp-simplepie-sanitize-kses.php Polly Namaye said this followed “various complaints and accusations from the public.”

“We have reverted 103 traffic police personnel to general duties to pave way for closer monitoring and investigation, http://costpricesupplements.com.au/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-products-predictive-search-pro/classes/class-wc-predictive-search-filter.php ” said Namaye.

While police have made commendable progress in the areas of community policing, anti-terrorism and crowd control, the law enforcement body continues to grapple with high levels of corruption in the traffic department.

Traffic officers are yet to stop coercing offenders for bribes

President Museveni utilized the Uganda Police centenary celebrations in October to pour out his clearly long-held frustration with the Traffic Police.

Museveni praised the numerous commendable achievements by police under IGP Gen Kayihura but hastened to add that the force’s traffic department still harbored ‘elements of Satan.’

Museveni observed: “You know they say that when God is doing his work, Satan also comes along. It is interesting. When you meet these officers they are clad in very clean white attire and you may think they are angels, yet in their midst is Satan himself.”

Museveni addressed the matter in local dialects Luganda and Swahili, saying that this was a family affair, (not meant for the foreign delegates).

The president narrated to a cheering crowd how he at one point personally nabbed traffic officers taking a bribe from a truck driver.

“One day I bumped into these angels of ours in Mabira forest. I had stopped to use one of my vehicles which I move with, and I noticed traffic officers who had stopped a truck. I wanted to confront them right away but I chose not to. By the time I stepped out of the vehicle, the truck had disappeared. I asked them, where is the truck? And they told me “The truck is already gone sir!” recounted the president in Swahili.

“Saasa huyo Shetani, baada ya myaka mia moja ya polisi, lazima tumukamilishe,” noted the president, that after 100 years, the devil in the police force should be stopped.

The president however noted that amongst the bad apples, there still existed some good elements willing to serve in the force with diligence, quoting the example of a deceased traffic officer named Wafula.

Namaye said the Uganda police force continues to urge the public to desist from the practice of giving money to traffic personnel as this is also tantamount to corruption.

“The police also encourages the public to report any incidence in which any police personnel acts unprofessionally and extorts money while on duty,” urged Namaye.

“The Uganda police force continues to develop the capacity of the police professional standard unit to investigate such and similar cases of unprofessional conduct among police personnel.”
