The Inspector General of Police Lt. Gen. Kale Kayihura has this afternoon launched a campaign to renovate and rehabilitate dilapidated police posts and barracks in the country.
Kayihura made the launch at the Kasese Central police station by painting the main block and breaking the ground for the construction of an improved pit latrine at the station.
Kayihura said after operating from the Kasese police station, he decided to launch a countrywide campaign because the place was stinking with human wastes and the main buildings were dilapidated.
He tasked the District Police Commander Jonathan Baroza to mobilize police personnel to undertake the construction of the latrine and the renovation of the houses. He said the campaign will be rolled over to
the rest of the country.
The Kasese Central Police Station was constructed in the mid 1970’s during the late Idi Amin’s regime.
Meanwhile, police will foot the completion of a house that was smashed with stones by rioters on the eve of the Kasese Woman parliamentary by-elections as they protested the cordoning of the home of Rwenzururu
Kingdom Chief Prince Christopher Kibanzanga.
Police who accessed Kibanzanga’s house after nearly ten hours of cordoning claimed they had been informed that there were bouncers and hooligans being hidden by the former Busongora South MP to disrupt the elections.
When police engaged the angry FDC supporters, they attacked the home of Mr. Johnson Kiryango a senior NRM cadre in Kisanga Village, Nyamwamba Division in Kasese Municipality.
Kiryango told the IGP that the rioters used heavy stones to smash the doors and windows of his house claiming they wanted his head.
Lt. Gen. Kale Kayihura instructed the police construction Unit not only to repair the damage but the completion of the house the work of which is likely to cost six million shillings.
