The Chief Political Commissar in the Uganda Police Force, AIGP Asan Kasingye, has urged officers in the Siipi Region to avoid any form of corruption but also keep off cases of indiscipline for better service delivery to the public.

AIGP Kasingye who is on rectification and ideological orientation tour in the Sipi policing region sounded the warning as he met officers from Bukwo, Kween, and Kapchorwa districts.

He warned that the force is now going to be strict on issues to do with corruption

“I’m going throughout the country talking to officers about the issue of corruption, like selling off police bonds. Service delivery cannot reach the grassroots. We don’t serve with patriotism just because of the cancer of corruption. We must tackle corruption head-on,” AIGP Kasingye said.

He warned officers to desist from corrupt tendencies.

“We are now having a zero-tolerance on corruption. If anyone has been implicated in issues of bribery and other issues of corruption, we are not going to transfer these officers from district to another because he was corrupt in the former district, we are going to try our officers and if found culpable, we shall dismiss them from the police,” he warned.

AIGP Kasingye said cases of indiscipline dent the image of the force. He, therefore, asked officers to join discipline with no corruption so as to keep the force’s image intact.

According to Kasingye, as the force’s Chief Political Commissar, he will therefore move to all police units in the country to understand the conditions under which the officers are serving. He will then bring some of their concerns to the police management for redress.

This development comes at the backdrop of a warning by President Museveni for the umpteenth time against corruption by police officers.

Museveni also said he will not entertain corruption in the law and order enforcement body.

“In the recent rankings, police took the cup of corruption. You scored 70% in corruption and that means you got a distinction. Corruption in the Police Force should stop,” Museveni said.
