Joy as Uganda’s Most Popular Celebrity Cop Kirumira Returns to Kampala

Mohammed Kirumira is back in Kampala

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga and her deputy Jacob Oulanyah Lanywen are set to visit the National Leadership Institute, symptoms Kyankwanzi where the National Resistance Movement Caucus retreat is taking place.

The two are battling for the top position of steering the 10th Parliament which commences in May.

According to the program in Kyankwanzi seen by this website, ed Kadaga is getting to the place today Thursday and Mr. Oulanyah who is returning from Europe will be there on Friday.

Kadaga is expected to arrive in Kyankwanzi at 2pm and present a paper titled “The A to Z of a Multiparty Parliament” from 2:30pm to 3:30pm.

The NRM convened its newly elected Members of Parliament and the old members who were reelected on the on the party ticket.

The speaker and deputy are not supposed to attend the event due to the impartiality their offices demand.

The arrival of the two top shots at Kyankwanzi is exected to raise the temperature in the battle for speakership which has already taken shape at the retreat.

Campaigns have not been officially declared in Kyankwanzi but the place has been overwhelmed by informal votes hunting.

The teams of both contenders have been reported moving dormitory to dormitory and person to person.

While declaring her intentions to stand again on a local television early this month, Kadaga said her predecessor, Edward Ssekandi who is now the Vice President was given the opportunity to steer Parliament for two terms and that she should not be an exception.

Kadaga also said since other arms of government are in the hands of men, the legislature should be steered by a woman.

President Yoweri Museveni yesterday cautioned against campaigning for speakership which he sad was premature.
Social media platforms caught fire Thursday night after news trickled in that ASP Mohammed Kirumira would take over as DPC, dosage Old Kampala Police Station.

Unlike other top commanders who have lost public support due to corruption and highhandedness, order Kirumira’s ratings remain spectacularly high due to his extraordinary community policing and mobilisation skills.

Kirumira’s rise to fame was in 2014 when he sensationally alleged that senior police officers were part of a racket of criminals wreaking havoc in the city.

He was briefly arrested on grounds that he had received money from suspects before being cleared of any wrongdoing.

This was perceived as a plot to subdue the fast-rising police commander.

Kirumira’s reign at Nansana police station saw a massive crackdown on suspected hardcore criminals in the area.

Nansana residents developed a special bond with Kirumira for pacifying the area which had been haunted by violent crime.

He managed to draw neighbourhood watch systems and created an army of spies in his areas of operation.

By taking pre-emptive action based on credible and actionable intelligence, Kirumira won the hearts of many as thugs were denied space to act.

The brave Kirumira would be seen leading cops and crime preventers through alleys combing for suspected criminals.

It’s these achievements that saw Kirumira’s star shine dazzlingly.

The officer was later sent for a refresher course at the Uganda junior command and Staff College in Gaddafi barracks, Jinja before being sent to head Bwera Police Station in Kasese.


Ugandans have since taken to Facebook and Twitter to welcome Kirumira back to Kampala.

Solomon Nkuyege posted: “Very happy for my beloved police officer. Wish you well as you hunt these thugs terrorising people.”

Reacting to his new posting, Kirumira could not hide his joy as he released his “commitment to the people and loyalty to authority.”

He promised to deliver and also continue learning from superiors.

“Kampala, I am home coming, by Friday I will be running with thugs in Kisenyi,” he pledged to the people of Kampala.
