Petition against IGP Kale Kayihura Gets Set Back as Witnesses Quit


The expected appearance of the inspector general of police before the Makindye Chief magistrates’ court over police brutality took a new twist this morning when three of the witnesses lined up by the petitioners in the matter bowed out of the case. They claimed the petitioners, some ministers and senior army officials behind the petition compromised them with money to pin the IGP but their conscience has now come clean. This version of facts was however contested by city lawyer Abdallah Kiwanuka, one of the petitioners.
