Kisoro, Uganda | URN | The former Inspector-General of Police Gen. Edward Kale Kayihura made several mistakes on the orders of President Yoweri Museveni, the National Unity Platform [NUP] presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has told voters in Kisoro.
He was speaking at his campaign rally at Ssaza playground in Kisoro district on Wednesday 16th, December 2020. President Museveni replaced the former police chief in March 2019 shortly before he was arrested and charged with aiding and abetting the kidnap and illegal repatriation of Rwandan refugees.
He was also charged with failing to protect war material when he gave firearms to Boda-boda 2010, an authorized civilian group under the leadership of Abdallah Kitatta. He was later released on bond by the UPDF General court-martial.
But to Mr Kyagulanyi, Gen. Kayihura played a big role to sensitize ghetto youths in Kampala to quit drugs such as marijuana without arresting any. He however says President Museveni influenced Gen. Kayihura to make mistakes including abusing his authority.
