Stop using excess force – CP Kafeero warns officer

The Kampala Metropolitan Field Force Unit (FFU) has today been cautioned against maximum usage of tear gas and excessive force while handling public order management operations.

This happened in a meeting the Unit had with the new Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander, CP. Moses Kafeero Kabugo.

CP Kafeero’s concern emanates from the extreme criticism police has in recent times faced from the public and human rights bodies on extreme use of excessive force while handling public affairs.

He asked officers to always consider all their actions in accordance with the laws of Uganda, asking that whatever is done must never amount to degrading treatment or torture and shouldn’t affect people’s privacy or family life.

He however gave them a thumbs up on use of excessive force in exceptional circumstances where all other options will have been considered and tried.
