Former Buyende DPC ASP Muhammad Kirumira has on Thursday been released on bail by Police Disciplinary Court.
Kirumira who presented Assistant Commissioner of Police Sam Omara to stand as surety for his bail has been given stringent terms among which include reporting to the Professional Standards Unit every day, not to speak to the media and posting on social media about police issues.
He is being charged with several counts by police, and for over two weeks has been detained at Nalufenya Police Facility in Jinja.
Last Tuesday, he applied for bail but police court said it would only be granted if he presented to court two senior police officers above his rank.
Secondly, he was ordered to report to the Police Profession Standards Unit (PSU) daily.
Upon hearing this, Mr Kirumira tried to march out of court saying reporting to PSU every morning meant that he would have to sacrifice his personal work.
He said police had confiscated his phones and therefore there was no way he would have contacted senior police officers to stand surety for him.
He was re-arrested and taken back to Nalufenya.
