President Yoweri Museveni has revealed that former Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura is not the brain behind the crime preventers’ initiative.
Museveni’s revelation comes nearly a month after he replaced Kayihura with then Deputy IGP Martin Okoth-Ochola.
Addressing over 3,000 crime preventers at MTN Arena Lugogo yesterday 28 March, Museveni said General Kayihura was just a good cadre who implemented the project.
Museveni said the crime preventers will be under the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF). He said the new crime preventer team should meet with the Chief of Defence Forces (CDF), Gen. David Muhoozi.
He told crime preventers that he has already talked to the CDF that the crime preventers scheme deserves to be under the army.
The President told crime preventers to be exemplary actors in poverty eradication in their homes and communities. Museveni pledged to put Uganda 1.3 billion Shillings in crime preventers’ SACCO.
