Bunyoro kingdom has said they will not allow the newly appointed Hoima District Police Commander to operate in the area over an unfortunate incident over the weekend.
The Mbogo clan chiefs who were attending a thanksgiving ceremony for their leader, Gajuule Kayiira Kasibante were dispersed when police fired teargas as they convened at Magulu in Zigoti town on Saturday.
Consequently, two police commanders including Bob Kagarura, the Wamala Regional Police Commander and the DPC Alex Mwine were transferred.
Whereas Kagarura was taken to Bukedi North, Mwine was sent to Hoima in the same position.
However, addressing journalists on this evening, the Bunyoro kingdom prime minister, Andrew Byakutaga said they cannot allow Mwine become the commander of the district that hosts the official seat of Bunyoro kingdom.
Byakutaga revealed that he has written to the Inspector General of Police, John Martins Okoth Ochola, Minister for Internal Affairs and the Hoima Resident District Commissioner to withdraw the transfer of Mwine to Hoima and instead deploy befitting disciplined officers.
However, when contacted for a comment on the matter, police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said the force has not received the petition. ENDS
