The Democratic Party's (DP) president, Norbert Mao wants Police Chief, Gen. Kale Kayihura to name and shame politicians allegedly working with criminals.

On Monday, Kayihura told the media that Police received intelligence indicating that some of the panga-wielding thugs who have been terrorizing the central region are linked to some politicians.

Kayihura, without mentioning names, said after failing to win politically, they had resorted to destabilizing the security in the country through instilling fear and creating outrage among the populace by facilitating the attacks.

On Monday, 30 suspects in the attacks were paraded at Katwe Police Station in Kampala.

While addressing journalists at the party's headquarters in Kampala, Mao asked Kayihura to stop “making sweeping statements” but instead take action against those involved.

"I think Police and the intelligence organs are not serious. Let Kayihura arrest those involved. They know these people but are just playing these games of Tom and Jerry," he noted.

He wondered why the responsible authorities are not arresting the culprits if they know them, yet more people continue to lose lives and property.

Mao said as the opposition, they have heard discussions and ruled out violence in all their struggles.

"But who said iron bar hitmen belong to opposition? That is why we do not want such accusations if they cannot arrest those involved. They have all the machinery but have failed to protect people," he added.
