I Was Acting on Orders From My Boss — Police driver Who Knocked Besigye Supporter
By Serestino Tusingwire
The arrested police driver who knocked the excited supporter of Dr. Kizza Besigye in Kyebando on July 12 denied the case saying he was under the instructions of his boss.
Benon Matsiko was arrested and paraded before the media on Monday last week a month after NTV broadcasted a video of a police pickup knocking down Dr Kizza Besigye supporter.
While appearing before the police standards Unit yesterday, Matsiko told investigators that his boss SP Michael Kasigire the DPC Kira Road Police Station ordered him to knock Besigye supporters who were standing by the roadside.
“I think that Afande Kasigire should also be paraded here because he is the one who ordered me to knock Besigye supporters. I was actually with him at the time of the incident,” Matsiko said.
The Police Standards Unit therefore promised that the investigators will amend the charge sheet to include Kasigire.
