Police lacks technology

Police says it lacks the technology to track phones once switched off.

This has been revealed by the Kampala Metropolitan commander Moses Kafeero while appearing with his bosses before the human rights committee of parliament after the MPs quizzed him on steps police is taking to apprehend kidnappers.

Kafeero informed MPs that some of the kidnappers were using the victims phones which he said make it hard to know their identity.

Kafeero gave an example of Rose Nakiseeka whom he said the kidnappers were using her phone and every time they would make the calls to demand for ransom the kidnappers would switch off the phone immediately which he says once the phone is switched off the mast cannot detect these phones.
