HE president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni recently bragged about getting rid of what he calls ‘’Kawukumi’’ (bean weevils) in the police force. The president talked of this while addressing the recent brutal murders that are causing fear among civilians.
Through a long Facebook post, the president boosted of removing inefficient people in the police work force which was seen as if the president was referring to former colleague Kale Kayihura.
President Museveni sacked Mr Kayihura in March this year and later detained by the military regarding cases of failure to protect war materials and aiding in the kidnap of Rwandans.
Kayihura was replaced by his deputy Martin Okoth Ochola. “The police is now more effective because I got rid of the kawukumi (been weevils), thugs wont escape” the president said.
The post for president Museveni reads.
The following morning some suspects were arrested, one of them suspected to have been bitten by Rwego’s dog before they entered the house to kill him. In Naluvule, on Hoima Road, the criminals invaded the house of my Resistance War comrade Hajjati Bakari, started beating her and demanding money.
A neighbour rang the Police in Wakiso who ordered the policemen at Ssenge to respond. The Police responded immediately. They arrived on the scene as the criminals were still torturing Mama Bakari and attacked the thieves. One was killed, another one injured and the rest fled. The Police captured the mobile phone of the dead thief and all the other thieves fled, some with injuries. What was the difference in the two incidents? In one incident, the residents rang the Police in time. In the other incident, nobody rang the Police.
The wife of Rwego made an alarm but since it was raining nobody heard the alarm. The better alarm is to ring the Police. I have already directed the Police to make available to the public the telephone contacts of the nearest police posts so as to save time. The crime has two elements.
The purely criminal elements like these two incidents and the other incidents that are a bit political like the killing of Abiriga, the Sheikhs, Kiggundu, Joan Kagezi etc. In all these cases, it has been the corruption of the Police and the lack of vigilance of the public. You can see how minimal vigilance and a cleaner although very small Police element have been able to achieve.
