Lieutenant General Kale Kayihura Inspector General of Police (IGP)
Having accomplished Museveni’s mission of militarizing the police, killing Ugandans the former Major General Kale Kayihura has been rewarded by being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General.
In Uganda since 1986 most of the recruitment and promotion in the armed forces have been based on tribe and region not merit and those army officers that are merciless heartless in executing their duties of killing ,brutalizing Museveni’s political opponents have always been promoted.
Its surprising that Uganda with 52 tribes the Banyanokle who are Museveni’s tribe mate are having a majority share in all government department now they ‘re having a lion share in the army and police that ‘s sustaining Museveni in power.Now with Museveni’s promotion , Out of 13 promotions in the army 12 are banyankole while only one among the remaining 51 tribes was promoted.
The promotion of Maj. Gen. Kayihura is evidence that President Museveni is happy with what he is doing—abusing peoples’ rights, militarising the police and mistreating citizens with police machinery. With the promotion of Mbabazi ‘s wife Jacqueline Mbabazi . Shows that everything in the country is now in the hands of two families; Kaguta’s and Mbabazi’s, meaning Uganda is now a partnership between two men and their families
