The Uganda Police force has this morning transferred its very own the former Buyende District Police Commander ASP Muhammad Kirumira to Nalufenya Police Detention Centre.
Kirumira was moved last night from the Railway Police Post where he was remanded yesterday afternoon by the Police Tribunal sitting at the Police Headquarters in Naguru.
The transfer was confirmed by Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima when contacted by our reporter.
Afande Kirumira was arrested from his residence in Bulenga on Thursday amid protest from his neighbours and family members who never wated their darling officer to get arrested.
Police, who cut open his door and dragged him out of his house, used live bullets to disperse the protesting residents.
Kirumira is being charged with six counts; torture, unlawful arrests, corruption, bribery, extortion and excessive use of authority he allegedly committed when he was in-charge of Nansana Police Station and Old Kampala as division police commander in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
However, Kirumira who had become a darling cop for his ruthless hunt for criminals in Kampala had questioned the manner in which he has charged for the same old counts that where levied on him since 2010.
Kirumira thinks that there is something ‘fishy’ in these fresh charges questioning further why he is being charged now. He also questions why he is not taken to criminal court, but rather a disciplinary court.
