I have no issues with Tumukunde- Kayihura

The Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura has opened up on his relationship with the minister of Security, Lt General Henry Tumukunde.

There had been reports that two generals have a rift between after they publicly disagreed on the handling of AIGP Kaweesi murder and the rampant killings of women in Entebbe.

However, Kayihura said those peddling allegations of a rift between him and Tumukunde are trying to whip up a storm in a tea cup.

“From my point of view I don’t have any problems with Honourable Tumukunde. I respect him and I know his role as minister of Security. I stick to my mandate as IGP which is to ensure that law and order is kept,” he said.

“How do I disagree with a minister? I am at the operational level. He is high up there. Whoever wants to make this an issue, I don’t know what their intention is."

Kayihura also opened up on the recent fracas between the Police and sister security agencies at the home of Muhooza Christine Mbabazi, a girlfriend to the late Kaweesi.

He said there had been a minor misunderstanding between various security agencies which had been sorted out.

“It was not big. It was just some uncoordinated troop movement.”
