Police apologize to justice Kanyeihamba, pledge best security to retired Judge

By Francis Otucu

In a letter dated June 10, 2019 signed by the Commandant VIPPU, Commissioner of Police Herman Owomugisha, the force argued that Justice George Kanyeihamba was right on alleged hostage.

“I want to state that your advice after analysis was genuine and valid as one of the senior citizens of our country. I want to say sorry for inconveniences caused to you and your family for unnecessary attractions and attentions in the media,” the apology letter reads in part.

The force therefore pledged the best security for Justice Kanyeihamba.

“We take your security seriously and I personally promise to work with my staff to provide you the best security you deserve,” said Owomugisha noted.

This after the Police in a statement a week ago dismissed rumors that the retired Judge Kanyeihamba was held hostage by his guard attached to VIPPU.

Kanyeihamba said he was angered by the statement.

“I was so angry with the story. This was made to damage me beyond recognition. This is like I have an illegal gun,” said Justice Kanyeihamba said while addressing journalists at his Buziga residence, an upscale suburb near Kampala.

He said he has asked the police to publish an apology in the newspaper.

“I told the Police to make a written apology and publish it in the newspapers,” he said.
