Kasese MP asks Kayihura to Apologise to Ugandans

Kasese district woman Member of Parliament Winifred Kizza has asked Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura to apologise to Uganda over deceiving the citizens about Kasese shooting.


Raising the matter on the floor of parliament on Tuesday, the opposition legislator said Kayihura should apologise for misleading Ugandans.

“The Inspector General of Police needs to apologize for misleading Ugandans and painting the King as a person who is against the government,” she said.

She said Kale Kayihura has not met the leaders of Kasese.

Winifred Kizza noted the people Kayihura met lost the election.

“The National Resistance Movement in Kasese is the opposition. Most leaders are Forum for Democratic Change,” she noted.

Addressing press on Sunday, Kayihura said the police officers shot the attackers after an ambush while patrolling lower Kendahi cell, Kikongo ward and Hima Town Council in Kasese district.

Kayihura said the attackers are linked to Rwenzururu kingdom.

He alleged that they were part of a bigger rebel group that is allegedly fighting to split away from Uganda.
