Afande Kayihura, are you serious? Police deny theft charges against Besigye
A claim made by the Inspector General of Police that opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye is facing charges of theft yesterday drew reactions of surprise at the station where the file is supposed to have been opened.
A senior police officer at Kasangati Police Station, who refused to be quoted saying he is not the Force’s spokesperson, yesterday told Daily Monitor that to the best of his knowledge, no such file has been opened against the leader of the country’s largest opposition party, FDC.
Lt. Gen. Kale Kayihura had on Friday told journalists in Kampala that Dr Besigye stole a tyre-shredding road barrier and threatened to harm police officers.
“Besigye committed a crime and he is lucky police did not break into his house. There is a file on that for stealing government property at Kasangati Police Station,” Lt. Gen. Kayihura said.
