Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) spokesperson Brigadier Richard Karemire has refuted media claims that President Yoweri Museveni had fallen out with Police chief Gen. Kale Kayihura and had transferred police powers to the military police.
Some print media was quoted saying,” impeccable sources” as claiming that the President has transferred a significant portion of classified operation budget of Gen Kayihura, to Brig Sabiiti Muzeeyi.
In his statement posted on twitter, Brig Karemire said “At no time have powers of the Inspector General of Police been transferred to the UPDF’s military police,” warning that, “The motive behind it (the article) shall be subject of investigations by competent agencies.”
“There is absolutely no threat or situation that has warranted the shift of core responsibilities and resources from the Uganda Police Force to the Military police,” Karemire clarified.
