The Ugandan army has apologized over behavior by some of its officers against a traffic police officer.
UPDF Spokesperson, Brig Richard Karemire on Sunday tweeted an apology after a picture made rounds on social media showing military officers roughing up a traffic police officer who blocked them from making a wrong U-turn.
“We have been informed of the incident involving a Police traffic Sergeant and UPDF military Police Soldiers. It is very regrettable and apologies to our Police Sister.UPDF and UPF are establishing the facts .Findings will guide action to be taken,” Karemire tweeted.
The military soldiers are bodyguards to Uganda’s Ambassador to Burundi, Maj Gen Matayo Kyaligonza.
