Kayihura.
“I’m handing over a Police Force that is much better than the one I found, I leave the force after 12 + years of intense activity with lots of optimism for the future of our country. I want to apologize to whoever I stepped on to forgive me, whatever I did was for the good of our country,” he added,
Kayihura also noted that “I’ll forever be indebted to the Commander in Chief and the President for his trust and giving me the opportunity to serve my country in this capacity. He has promoted me through the ranks and that’s not a small achievement.”
