The Professional Standards Unit of the Uganda Police Force has opened an investigation into the alleged beating and torture of the Woman Member of Parliament for Buvuma District, Hon. Susan Nakaziba Mugabi, and some of her supporters. This happened while security labored to stop them from holding an unlawful assembly at Kyanja village, Bweema sub-county in Buvuma district on the April 19th 2023.
The Hon. MP and her supporters had reportedly defied the guidelines from the District Security Committees, following disagreements between Buvuma Women’s Council and the Woman MP. As a result, the district security team dispersed the unlawful gathering and also arrested four suspects. However, some of the officers aggressively man-handled the protestersand, a video of them doing so went viral.
As soon as the video came to the attention of the IGP, Martins Okoth Ochola, he immediately ordered the PSU to institute inquiries and ensure officers who committed acts of violence are held accountable. “The UPF as an institution continues to stand for the rule of law and will hold all accountable, who commits acts of torture,” said Fred Enanga, the Force`s chief mouthpiece.
The summoned officers include; SP Kanyesigye Jamal the D/RPC, SP Bagoole Michael – DPC Buvuma, AIP Odeke Francis, CPL Wamanga David, PC Obalim, PC Turyahebwa Akim, PC Ahamize Brave, PC Olari Albert John, PC Egwel Peter Aggrey, PC Kabaheka Benson, PC Makomeli Emma Kevin.
