Police in Uganda collude with drugs dealers

02 October 2013, 16:29 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Authorities in Uganda have established that some corrupt senior police officers connive with drug dealers making the country one of the leading drugs transits in the world.

Uganda's Inspector General of police, General Kale Kayihura, has confirmed that he has received information that some senior police officers collaborate with drug dealers in the outskirts of Kampala to execute their illegal acts thus making their arrest and prosecution difficult.

"I got information that some senior police officers are corrupt and aid drug dealers.I hear they make exhibits got with the dealers disappear and in most cases the culprits are not taken to court for prosecution," Kayihura said.

He said that one of the cases opened the eyes of the authorities on corrupt officers was when a man was arrested with heroine but when he was taken to court, crashed chalk was presented instead of the drug.

He confirmed that in a bid to instill discipline among police officers in the forces, he has instructed the arrest of some senior police officer alleged to be dealing with drug traffickers.

Among those arrested were the District police commander of Kabalagala, DPC Francis Chemsto, and other senior officers.

The arrested officers are being held at the police profession standards unit as investigations continue.

Kayihura said that all the police officers implicated in the racket of protecting drug dealers in Kabalagala, Kansanga, Buziga, Bunga, Munyonyo, Gaba and nearby areas will have to face the law. Most drug traffickers reside in the mentioned areas in the outskirts of Kampala.
