Kampala: Wandegeya Police Station has detained Inspector of Police Luben Ngasaki, an officer attached to Wandegeya Police Station, and his son, Walter Mumbere, after he was found dressed in his father’s police uniform.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Spokesperson Patrick Onyango, the incident happened on 23/8/2020 at around 2100 hours at Wandegeya Police Station.
“Mumbere, a civilian who was drank, picked the uniform in the police barracks while his father was away from home and moved out while making uncoordinated statements, which raised suspicion that he wasn’t a police officer” Onyango said.
Ongango adds that the suspect was arrested and taken to the station where it was established that he wasn’t a police officer.
He has been charged with being in possession of government stores and his father Inspector of Police Ngasaki has been charged with neglect of duty since he failed to protect government stores.
“Both suspects are detained at Wandegeya Police Station pending court” Onyango said in a statement.
He adds that Ngasaki is likely to appear in our disciplinary court while the son will appear in criminal court.
“We want to advise all police officers to guard jealously all the police kits and equipment in their possession and not allow their relatives and children to play with them” Onyango said.
