Police has explained why the van they used to arrest Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s promoter Andrew Mukasa of Bajjo Events had the same plates as those of the deputy Inspector General of Police.
CP Enanga Fred, Police Spokesperson told press on Monday that they were aware of attempts by those who patronize the suspect to divert the attention of the public and investigators from the major investigation, by dragging the person of the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP), into the arrest of Andrew Mukasa.
Enanga said the private car number plates indeed belong to “our sister agency” who logistically supported the police operation.
Such number plates when the situation demands, can be used to achieve tactical or operational results.
The DIGP last used those number plates in May, 2018, while appearing before the Parliamentary Appointments Committee, Enanga explained.
He said Maj Gen Sabiiti Muzeyi has since been allocated an official police vehicle and now has no attachment to those private numbers plates.
He said the Special Investigation Directorate under the Criminal Investigations Directorate [CID] has taken over inquiries into the case of incitement to violence through social media by Bajjo.
When translated, Andrew Mukasa of Bajjo events warns H.E. The President of their plans to oust him before the year 2021, and further warns the military of similar plans to oust the President, and indicates with confidence how he had people backing him.
The suspect consciously ran the risk of being charged for inciting violence, treason or misprision of treason, since the law protects the honour of the President as a democratically elected leader.
