Earlier today Gen. Jeje Odongo, Minister of Internal Affairs addressed the media about ongoing activities of the Uganda Police Force. The Minister appealed to members of the public to place a dividing line between Kale Kayihura the individual and the institution, highlighting both as two distinct entities.
“Is he being charged as an individual or as an institution?” Gen Jeje Odongo asked the members of the Fourth Estate. He stressed, “We should be talking about Inspector General of Police as the institution and not the individual.”
At the same meeting the Internal Affairs Minister condemned last week’s 10th August 2016 demonstrations at Makindye court as unlawful.
“Ministry of Internal Affairs does not condone or support unlawful demonstration or gatherings,” Odongo said. He added that, “Government regrets the incident and also notes similar incidences that happened in the past and will take measures to ensure that these are not repeated again.”
In the case of SP Aaron Baguma – Jejje Odongo was quick to say, the matter is before the Directorate of Public Prosecution, “I can say categorically he (SP Aaron Baguma) will appear in court and be charged accordingly.”
