All that is hoodwinkery..am very sure all those transfered have something to report about the never solved cases of Crime in and around Uganda..

The Police itsself is a haven of Criminals beginning with the IGP..Question: Who murdered Joan Kagezi? Why is her file empty?..Kaweesi had to die simply because some dirt was surfacing..Transfer or not expect no progress so long as Kale the cadre is at the Helm..

The police force needs new a leadership.

An army man belongs to the army not the police. As some would say, insanity is when you keep on doing the same thing and expect different results.
