Tension is mounting in Hoima District after the Kingdom of Bunyoro-Kitara rejected the newly deployed District Police Commander (DPC) Alex Mwine.
This website has learnt that for reasons yet to be revealed, Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom rejected the deployment of Mr Alex Mwine in Hoima as District Police commander. It should be noted that Hoima hosts the official seat of Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom.
While addressing the media on Friday afternoon, Bunyoro Kitara Kingdom Prime Minister Owek. Andrew Byakutaga, said that the Kingdom rejects the deployment of Mwine, who has a record of questionable discipline.
DPC Mwine was implicated in the teargassing of the Mbogo clan members including senior religious leaders who had gathered in Mityana District last week.
The above actions caused widespread condemnation of the police from members of the public which prompted the Police to make a public apology.
The Prime Minister informed the media that he has written to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Martins Okoth Ochola, requesting him to rescind the transfer of Mwine to Hoima and instead deploy befitting disciplined officers.
However, it is not yet clear whether the IGP will rescind the transfer as requested by the Bunyoro Kingdom although we have established that Mwine has vowed to take on the deployment come rain or sunshine!
