Focus on Crime, Kayihura Told

Opposition Democratic Party (DP) have called upon the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Gen. Kale Kayihura to concentrate more on fighting insecurity in the country which is on the rise especially in Kampala, rather than spending a lot of time “politicking and campaigning for NRM candidates.”

Kenneth Paul Kakande, the DP spokesperson told the media during a weekly press briefing that the souring insecurity especially in Kampala as the country nears elections was what the IGP should be focusing on at the moment.

Kakande highlighted such criminal gangs as Kifeesi, Kasoro group, B 13, Red Top and many more operating in Kampala central, Nakawa, Kawempe among other areas.

DP further expressed concern over the recruitment of Special Police Constables (SPCs) to oversee the polling exercise, noting that these are only being deployed to help in vote rigging.
