The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Martins Okoth-Ochola, was yesterday grilled by legislators on Parliament’s Committee of Defence and Internal Affairs over the ruthless rearrest of Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana and Kawempe North MP Muhammad Ssegirinya.
Mr Ochola was in Parliament to respond to the matters relating to budgetary performance, continuous power blackouts, and water shortages in the various police barracks across the country, among other concerns.
The MPs led by Ms Rose Mary Nyakikongolo (Sheema District Woman MP), asked the IGP to explain who exactly rearrested Ssewanyana and Ssegirinya.
Mr Ochola, however, declined to respond and referred the question to the deputy Director Criminal Investigations Department, Mr Paul Kato.
Mr Kato didn’t reveal the security agencies involved in the rearrest but promised to find out more about those involved.
Ms Nyakikongolo then ruled that they give the police time to get the names of those involved in the rearrest of the two legislators, which they will present to the committee at a later time.
