The deputy Inspector General of Police Brig Sabiiti Muzeeyi last week met the Women’s Protest Working Group that have been demanding for answers on women kidnaps and murders.
At the meeting, which was held at police headquarters Naguru, the Women officially tabled a petition on recent kidnaps and killings of women and informed him of the planned million match on Kampala streets to voice their concerns.
According to a statement released by Police, during the meeting, the deputy IGP Police briefed them on the status of investigations that mainly concern the cases of kidnaps and murders across the country.
Dr Stella Nyanzi, a vocal activist who led the women group said: “The meeting was detailed, respectful and enlightening.”
She thanked the police for the embracing and partnering with them on a journey to protest against kidnaps and murders of women and children in Uganda.
The two teams agreed to work together in a more robust and focused way in order to defend and protect women and children against murders and kidnaps.
This meeting followed the cancellation of an earlier scheduled appointment with the IGP, two weeks ago.
