THE internal affairs state minister, Matia Kasaija, has warned police officers against indiscipline.
He vowed to sack officer who failed to comply with the rules or to fulfil their duties.

Kasaija was responding to the complaints by residents of Kitenga sub-county in Mityana district on Monday, that they are being tortured by the police.

He and the state minister for lands, Dr. Atwoki Kasirivu, had gone to mediate in land disputes that have resulted in thousands being evicted.

The residents said the Police connive with landlords to evict them illegally. “We voted the NRM government to get peace and now we are suffering. If nothing changes, we shall never give you our votes again,” a councillor, Alice Nakanjako, said.

“The Police only listen to the landlords,” the LC 3 chairperson for Kitengwa, Joash Kalangwa, added.

Kalangwa said he had been summoned to the regional CID office for mobilising people to stay on the land.

Kalangwa said if the land wrangles were not solved, no government programme would be successful, as people are living in fear of eviction and torture.

Kasaija ordered the office in charge of Mityana Police Station to explain the officers’ behaviour.
