Policemen and women as well as civilians living in Naguru police barracks are unhappy about poor state of pit latrines.

A number of police officers who spoke to journalists on condition of anonymity said roofs on most of the latrines in the Police barracks have fallen, while others were blown away by heavy winds.

A visit to Naguru police barracks by journalists indeed revealed a devastating condition of pit latrines as well as the shower rooms.

 Some latrines only have open old timber on top at the verge of falling in while others are left with broken and old pieces of iron sheets.

The most affected side is the one that houses Field Force Unit- FFU which is also known as Anti-Riot Police.

The latrines that are in a sorry state are also used by outpatient and inpatient people at Naguru Health Centre II.

The logistics directorate was formerly headed by AIGP Godfrey Bangirana who was last year forced out of office after his contract was not renewed.

The Inspector General of Police, Martin Ochola, appointed Senior Commissioner of Police –SCP Richard Edyegu, to serve as acting director. Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, did not respond to inquiry on what is being done to renovate or construct latrines which have caused sanitation related worries among police personnel, their wives and children.
