KAYIHURA SENDS DETECTIVES TO NALUFENYA

By UTN Reporter

Naguru - Police Chief Gen Kale Kayihura has relocated the Special Investigations Division-SID to Nalufenya, in Jinja.

This comes in a wake of President Museveni’s concern on the operation of the force’s investigative unit.

While paying tribute to fallen Police Spokesperson AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi, Mr Museveni remarked that the investigations unit of the Police had been swallowed in corruption and confusion within the force.

In a directive by Gen Kayihura, the entire unit has been shifted to Nalufenya for specialized training.

A source told UTN that the Counter Terrorism Unit based at Nalufenya will be relocated to a new post, possibly Kireka where the detectives had been.

The directive takes immediate effect.
