”Why Didn’t You Take Action?”-Museveni Grills Police Leadership Over Shooting Of Indian Businessman

By Spy Uganda

HE Yoweri Kaguta Museveni dubbed Commander of armed forces is wondering why the police leadership didn’t take action to take its officer for a mental checkup before he murdered an innocent Indian businessman who left his beloved country and came to spur Uganda’s economy.

In a statement about the murder of Mr Uttam Bhandari, he lists a couple of questions to ‘whom it may concern’ but most likely to Uganda Police leadership saying that all these current mistakes of killing innocent Ugandans by gunmen are traceable.

In his ‘questionnaire’, the President asks;

  1. How did an off-duty Policeman, access a gun?
  2. Did he walk away from his guard post without permission with a gun to commit crime?
  3. How are the guns stored in the Police?
  4. Is there no security at the site where the victim was?
  5. Why did that local security allow an armed person into the building who had no guard business there? Then, there is the question of the mental state of this Policeman.
  6. Did he have a history of mental instability? If he had, why hadn’t the Police leadership noticed and acted appropriately?

Museveni says the answers to the above questions may help him ”plug the gaps in the security system.”


According to Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, the said killer who has since gone into hiding was reportedly servicing two loans since 2020, secured at TFS Financial Services, a company owned by Bhandari.

It’s now said that this officer when he passed by this company yesterday to check on the progress of his loan, he run out of his normal moods and started shooting Bhandari accusing him of inflating the loan.

Bhandari’s shooting came just days after State Minister for Labour Col (rtd) Charles Okello Engola was shot by his bodyguard, Pte Wilson Sabiiti at his home in Kyanja, a Kampala suburb on May 2, 2023. Pte Sabiiti committed suicide after the shooting.

On top of the above, a security guard today in Kalule Zone, Lukuli Parish, Makindye Division, Kampala District also decided to kill a colleague by shooting over reasons yet to be known.
