Go And Graze Your Goats: IGP Dismisses Over 150 ‘Errant Police Officers Over Corruption

Go And Graze Your Goats: Police Dismiss Over 150 'Errant Police Officers Over Corruption

 

The Uganda Police force spokesperson, Fred Enanga has revealed that they have dismissed over 150 officers from the force over corruption and indiscipline.

Enanga made the announcement while addressing journalists at the police headquarters in Naguru on Monday saying that the officers had been found guilty by the different disciplinary measures in the force and consequently recommended their dismissal.

“All the cases against them were proven and for that matter, they can’t continue enforcing the law in police or using their positions,” Enanga said.

Enanga further noted that both the police Authority and Police Council Appointments and promotions Committee which is responsible for the disciplinary system in the force recommended for dismissal of the said officers.

The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj Gen Paul Lokech recently told the press that even if the officers appeal against the dismissal, they will not be reinstated.

“Even if you appeal, you will never come back to the police because I don’t want their services. The only person they can appeal to is God. We can sort out that one in heaven. Appeal for what if I don’t want your services? If you are corrupt, even if you appeal and I don’t want your services, you go. The law is very clear,” Lokech told noted

President Museveni had earlier castigated the police for being the most corrupt after they scooped the top position in the February report by the Inspectorate of Government and the Uganda Bureau of Statistics that ranked the police as the most corrupt government institution.

“In the recent rankings, the cup of corruption was taken by police. You scored 70% in corruption and that means you got a distinction. Corruption in the Police Force should stop,” Museveni said while meeting senior police officers at State House in Entebbe.

The Police’s Chief Political Commissar, AIGP Asan Kasingye last month revealed that the force has now resorted to a zero-tolerance approach to officers implicated in corruption cases.

“If any officer is implicated in bribery and other corruption-related incidents, you will not be transferred to another district as it was before. We are going to try you and if found culpable, we shall dismiss you from Police,” Kasingye warned officers.

The Fourth National Integrity Survey report 2019/2020 indicated that police scored 70% to lead other government institutions in corruption.
