Parliament has paid tribute to the fallen Ugandan police officer ASP Muhammad Kirumira, who was gunned down on Saturday evening by unknown gun men at Bulenga.
The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga described the late Kirumira as a courageous police officer who fought corruption in the police force and the rights of fellow police officers.
“We lost an officer who was courageous and brave, who spoke out on the issue of corruption, indiscipline and fraud in the Uganda Police force, I would like us to stand up for stand up for a moment of silence,”Kadaga said.
As proceedings marched on, there was silence from government ministers on pronouncement regards the murder. Legislators demanded a position from government.
“Parliament should be informed rather than reading from papers about this deteriorating situation in the country, we can’t proceed as if the situation in the country,” Theodore Ssekibubo remarked.
The legislators also demanded answers to why government officials were blocked from attending the burial ceremony of ASP Mohammad Kirumira in Mpambire.
Bitter over the unrelenting plague of murders, legislators also probed the murder of Henry Kanywamusayi together with son who were slain on Monday night at his home in Kajansi in Kampala.
However, minister of state for internal affairs, Mario Obiga Kania said he had no comment regarding the legislators concerns as President Museveni has already expounded on the matter.
“There is nothing more I could see than the in-depth statement from President Museveni on Sunday,” he said.
