Kalungu West MP, Joseph Gozanga Ssewungu
A section of MPs from Buganda region have asked the Catholic Church and Buganda Kingdom to reject Police apology over its brutality.
The IGP Martin Okoth Ochola Thursday made changes to the Police Force in which he transferred the RPC of Wamala region Bob Kagarura to Bukedi region while the DPC of Mityana Alex Mwine was transferred to Hoima.
This is after uproar arose last weekend after Ppolice fired teargas in Buganda Mbogo clan meeting that was being held at Mugulu in Zigoti Town Council.
The Mbogo clan chiefs were attending a thanks giving ceremony for their leaders Kayiira Gajuule together with religious leaders and out of the blue were dispersed with teargas by police in the area which led to the police this week to meet religious leaders and Buganda Kingdom to apologize for the incident.
However, Kalungu West MP, Joseph Gozanga Ssewungu said that the decision by police to transfer the errant officers instead of indicting them is a clear sign that government does not respect both institutions.
On his part, Latif SSebaggala (Kawempe North) said that police needs to reprimand the officers like it has been with other officers who have misbehaved as transferring them cannot be the solution.
Emmanuel Ssempala Kigozi (Makindye Ssabagabo Municipality) said that the conduct of the officers shows that they do not appreciate the norms and traditions of the people in Buganda and wants police to start deploy officers putting into consideration the community they will be serving.
