Butambala MP takes on police over allegations of being a beneficiary of police fuel
Butambala county member of Parliament Muhammad Muwanga Kivumbi has challenged the police force to clear the media allegations that indicated some MPs and other civilians as being beneficiaries of the police fuel.
Quoting an article in one of the local dailies( Bukedde Newspaper) published in June this year, kivumbi whose name was mentioned among the beneficiaries is furious that the allegations not only tarnish his integrity but also questions the reputation of the police as a force.
This he said as the Inspector General of police Martin Okoth Ochola and minister of state for internal affairs Kania Obiga appeared before the defence committee to respond to a number of queries in regard to the security situation in the country.
Kivumbi had asked that not until police clears its self on the matter, he threatened to resign his position as shadow internal affairs minister and also cause a by-election in Butambala.
In response, minister Mania Obiga says there where no basis for responding to mere allegations as there was no formal communication from police that was issued to the public in line with the matter discussed.
The chairperson of the defense committee Doreen Amule ruled that the matter will be traced and investigations will take course.
