There was chaos in Mpambire, Mpigi district on Sunday afternoon during the burial of former Buyende District police commander, ASP Muhammad Kirumira.
Kirumira was killed on Saturday along with a colleague by yet to be identified criminals that were riding motorcycles.
The furious crowds did not allow Internal Affairs Minister, Gen. Jeje Odong and police spokesperson Emilian Kayima were heckled at before being pelted by stones forcing them to abandon the function while running faster than cars.
The Internal Affairs minister had to run away in the front seat of his escort patrol vehicle to escape the wrath of the angry people.
Kayima was also not allowed to settle in the tent that had been prepared for them. It all started as the duo arrived to attend the burial but the mourners started chanting people power and bottles started flying in the air towards the government officials.
The police spokesperson is much known for defending the force and criticizing the fallen officer especially during the time when he was arrested and charged over cases including abuse of office and stealing arolex.
