POLICE OFFICERS THREATEN TO CAUSE A MUTINY

BY KENNEDY MUHIRE:

Kampala - Police constables attached to the embattled field force unit/police have threatened to cause mutiny because of salary delay.The bitter constables have gone three years without receiving salary without any explanation from their bosses.

An officer who preferred anonymity says he last received salary in 2014 together with his colleagues who were passed out in 2012, a condition he referred to as unfair and needs argent attention.

“ the last time I received salary was in 2014, ever since then, I have been moving up in the office of the admin but what he tells me is that our money has delayed in public service”.

To their dismay, majority of these officers have their names on the nominal role of the Uganda Police which means they are entitled to earning the monthly salary which they have not received. They are threatening to storm the police headquarters any time if the inspector general of police Gen Kale Kayihura does not come give them the attention.

Speaking to the commandant of the field force unit Fadil Kaali about the matter, he said they only stop giving salary to officers who deserted the force and those that have absconded from duty for a period of at least six months. About the officers who have not received salary and they appear on the nominal role he says he is not aware of such cases but promised to intensively investigate the matter with his human resource team to solve the problem.

Kaali warned those officer who have intentions of causing havoc in his unit that they will be dealt with accordingly.

The greatest threat is that each of these officers complaining signs for are gun while on duty and can access the gun any time he or she wants.

This as well comes at are time when robberies are on climax in the country but the fate of the guns used and stolen has never been explained, one will not be wrong to say these are some of the officers involved in robberies and other aggravated robbery cases.
