Mumbere, a civilian, picked the uniform in the police barracks while his father was away from home and wore it.
Mumbere, who was drank, moved out while making uncoordinated statements, which raised suspicion that he wasn’t a police officer.
He was arrested and taken to the station where it was established that he wasn’t a police officer.
He has been charged with being in possession of government stores and his father Inspector of Police Luben Ngasaki has been charged with neglect of duty since he failed to protect government stores.
Both suspects are detained at Wandegeya Police Station pending court.
IP Ngasaki is likely to appear in our disciplinary court while the son will appear in criminal court.
