President Museveni yesterday at 11.00PM visited the scene of the murder of former Buyende DPC Muhammad Kirumira and said his killers were enemies of the NRM. Below is a follow-up statement about the murder of maverick police officer.
Countrymen, Countrywomen and Bazukulu.
Condolences on the brutal killing of police officer Muhammad Kirumira at Bulenga. I visited the scene of the crime at 23:00hrs.
The criminals are still using the gaps I identified in my speech to Parliament. You remember the 20th June 2018 gaps? The Police Force is working hard to fill the gaps. They have started installing the cameras and other measures are being put in place.
The electronic identification of Boda bodas would have helped us to identify these people quickly.
However, while still using the old methods, I want to salute the residents of Bulenga for, although not armed, some Boda Bodas gave chase to the killers- 4 of them riding on motorcycles – up to Mile 9.
That limited counteraction may help us to expose the killers as happened in the case of Susan Magara.
On the urban criminals, the subcommittee of security began meeting at 10:00hrs under my chairmanship and we are to stop these pigs by not just relying on the old police methods.
Pending the installing of cameras etc everywhere, we are going to re-activate the Luweero methods to deal with these cowardly pigs. Wait for my announcement this afternoon.
Yoweri K. Museveni
