Uganda’s Deputy Inspector General of Police Gen Muzeeyi Sabiti has two days to find a plan that can wipe out crime in the country.
This ultimatum was given to Sabiti by President Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday saying its easy to defeat criminal gangs.
“I have given 2 days to Commander Sabiiti of the Police to come out with a plan to combat these gangs. The IGP is away in Peru for a meeting. I will look at that plan, comment on it and it will, then, be communicated to all of you,” Museveni said.
He added, “It is easy to defeat these gangs. Their crimes will only add to the credit of the NRM because we are going to defeat them. Yet, the People have already seen the bankruptcy and the criminality of these groups and those who back them.”
The country has been facing spates of attacks by thugs, some wielding machetes and iron bars and have been terrorizing citizens.
Museveni revealed that they would be defeated just like he did with those who had wrecked havoc in central region.
“These are gangs we shall easily defeat. That is what we did with the Kiddawalime gang in Masaka, the gang of Bukomero, the gang of Entebbe etc,” Museveni said.
