STOP COOPERATING WITH THE POLICE SINCE THEY’RE ONLY FOR NRM AND MUSEVENI


BY MAYIMUNA NABAGEREKA

A police force should be protecting us but its not , and I dont know why Ugandans are still cooperating with on various issues.The Police cannot continue to lord it over the public if they are not perceived to work for them. The people’s reaction to stop cooperating with them is warranted: it may be extreme, but it will be a protest against government’s irresponsibility. Firefighters should also be chased from accident scenes when they arrive too late. For me, it will be refreshing to see Ugandans showing greater boldness in demanding their rights. As a nation, we are too timid.

How the Police view themselves is crucial. So, the change of paradigm from force to service is required. Is the idea that the Police organisation is not effective/efficient because of lack of resources valid? It is true that when you go to the Police stations you find them in varying states of dilapidation, if you go to ICT crime departments you find them with no working computers, etc., etc. But is this situation real or manufactured? Could the Police leadership do something about that if they wanted to?
