Former presidential candidate and former FDC president Dr Kizza Besigye has called for the resignation of the inspector general of police Kale Kayihura over failure to manage security in the country.
Addressing journalists at his office at Katonga, Besigye says that after the out cry of increasing insecurity in the country with hit men terrorizing people across the country, Kayihura paraded suspects which is unacceptable in the constitution of Uganda to parade suspects who have not been proven guilty.
He notes that president Museveni earlier also revealed that there is organized crimes within the security organs which Kayihura has failed to streamline arguing that there are suspicions that some crimes are organized by police personnel.
He thus says that since Kayihura has failed to manage his office which is being given a lot of money to provide security in the country, he should be thrown out of office and have an independent inquiry in the security forces if security is to be regained in the country.
