Former Kampala Central Police Station DPC, Aaron Baguma has been redeployed in the recent transfers by the Inspector General of Police, Martin Okoth Ochola, the Nile Post has learnt.
In January last year, the Director of Public Prosecutions dropped charges against Baguma in relation to the murder of Dona Katusabe, a city businesswoman who was tortured to death at Pine car bond in Kampala for failing to pay a balance of Shs 9 million for a car she had earlier bought in 2015.
In the new deployments announced on Friday, Superintendent of Police Baguma has been sent to the private security and fire arms department of the Police Force under the Directorate of Operations.
Baguma was being accused together with seven others including Pine Car bond proprietor cum Kampala businessman Mohammad Ssebuufu of the murder of Katushabe.
The of Director of Public Prosecutions had accused Baguma of being criminally liable for neglecting his duty as a police officer leading to death of Katushabe.
It had been alleged that having gone to the scene of crime, Baguma found Katusabe being beaten and just asked her to pay off the debt instead of saving her from the irate mob led by the Pine car bond proprietor.
Katushabe later died of wounds from the beating.
The former CPS DPC was in December 2015 summoned to show up in court to answer the charges but failed to run up and amidst the circus, Baguma was sent for a four month course at the police senior and Staff College in Bwebajja along Entebbe.
He was finally produced and charged on August 30th 2016 before being remanded to Kigo prison.
The Director of Public Prosecutions in January 2018 dropped charges against Baguma but had never been redeployed.
