Museveni Fires Security Bosses Following August 13 Chaos


Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has suspended four top security and intelligence officers in West Nile sub-region over the August 13 chaos in Arua where one of the President’s bullet proofed convoy cars was stoned.

The officers include Regional Police Commander Jonathan Musinguzi, Regional Internal Security Officer Emmanuel Mugisha, Regional Crime Intelligence Officer and District Internal Security Officer Elly Tugaine.

The four have been suspended for not anticipating and taking measures towards the chaos in Arua.

“The regional and district police commanders, who should have anticipated the actions of these (Opposition) groups…, have been suspended. The DISO (District Internal Security Officer) has also been removed,” Mr Museveni noted.

Regional Police Commander Jonathan Musinguzi has been replaced by Mr Edward Mugweri in acting capacity.

Chaos broke out after three opposition politicians, among them Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine were arrested, detained and some charged with treason.
Bobi Wine’s driver was shot dead during the chaos.
“Police has shot my driver dead thinking they’ve shot at me. My hotel is now coddoned off by police and SFC.” Bobi Wine posted.
