Police disown Bryan White’s guards

The troubles of Bryan White Kirumira have worsened with police denying ever assigning him Police body guards. Kirumira has been moving around with four armed police officers. Kirumira was picked up last week for shooting and injuring Victor Bitwire, outside his home in Buziga, a Kampala suburb.

A police search in his home led to the recovery of a police rifle. Two officers attached to Kabalagala Police Station were arrested in connection to the incident.  The two officers were part of Kirumira's security detail.

However, Police Spokesperson, Emilian Kayima, says the force has never assigned Kirumira any police guards since he has never made a formal request for security. "There is no deployment as to the effect of guarding Bryan White. Whoever was involved will have to explain how he or she got there. Some are already in custody," Kayima said.

However, it is still uncertain why Police had remained silent on the matter until then since Kirumira has been moving around with the police guards for some time. He once appeared in a city tabloid jogging under the protection of six heavily armed personal believed to be police officers.

"I am not sure that the police simply looked on. His action should be a lesson to all those socialites who love to get VIP treatment. It's also a lesson to security personnel that are possibly into such habits," Kayima said.

According to Kayima, they are hunting for the remaining officers who have been moving with Kirumira as well as guard his homes.
