Asan Kasingye, the Assistant Inspector General of Police urged officers to act professional as they do their work. He says people must exercise their rights to vote and go home safely.
Kasingye said this during the closing ceremony of the community liaison and political commissar officers.
“People must exercise their right to vote and go home safely. Make sure you observe professionalism. This is the time when police is put on test. Everyone is watching you. Don’t go and relax, put in extra effort to make sure we secure our country in a peaceful manner.” As an Kasingye said.
Asan Kasingye also went ahead to urge the officers to exhibit honest and openness as they carry out their duties.
He added that this election period is the time to show what they have learned during the seminar that kicked of last year on 28th December.
“Observe maximum honesty, openness in conducting official business, commitment to the Constitution of Uganda and other government laws as you serve our people without discrimination on the basis of gender, race, colour, religion and region.”
Since the campaigns started, police has received many complaints about the conduct of their officers towards the citizens of the country. Some even allege that the police is partisan and yet they are supposed to be neutral and working for all Ugandans.
Let’s just hope and pray that after the seminar they had, their conduct will be professional and fair especially now that elections are just around the corner.
