Tumwine condemned the actions by Angina noting that the national army and police should never be dragged into personal matters.
KAMPALA - Security minister Gen. Elly Tumwine has clashed with Lt. Gen. Charles Angina, the Deputy Co-ordinator of Operation Wealth Creation.
On Friday, Tumwine faced off with Angina over his (Angina's) decision to drag the army and Police into the destruction of a wall belonging to city businessman Geoffrey Kirumira.
The minister stormed Muyenga after Angina deployed soldiers and Police, during which he supervised the destruction of the wall of the hotel and building, property that belongs to Kirumira.
Tumwine condemned the actions by Angina, noting that the national army and Police should never be dragged into personal matters.
"Why do it during the night and not during the day? Don't abuse our Forces," the minister asked Angina.
"We all have wrangles and disagreements, but we don't use the Force like this. We have worked so hard to preserve the image of our Force and this is a small matter that should have been handled amicably.
"Where are the KCCA letters showing the boundary? It should have been KCCA doing enforcement, not you. You are just using your personal interest here," said the minister.
In an interview with Saturday Vision, Tumwine said he had received a call from the residents of Muyenga at around 7:00 pm after he had landed at the airport.
"I received a call from the local residents that Gen. Angina, together with the Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) Field Forces Commander Senior Superintendent of Police, Rashid Agero, had brought in graders at 3:00 am and with impunity they were destroying a wall of a hotel belonging to Kirumira," Tumwine said.
