The Territorial Police in Kiira Region in close coordination with the Zonal Field Force Unit, has charged 4 Field Force Officers with discreditable conduct, after they recorded a man and woman, who was making love in a car, shared their video, while they were half naked. This occurred on the 7/09/2019 near Kakira main gate and were supposed to be arrested for being public nuisance.
On investigation, the video which went viral was traced to officers of the Integrated Highway Patrol in Kakira, who recorded the suspects turned victims on video and shared the video using one of their phones. These include; CPL Magala Mathew, PC Ssemakula Musa, PC Ndyanabo Yonasan, and PC Mayenge Joel.
It is a serious matter when you get suspects then place them in a vulnerable position and take advantage of their situation. The behavior of the officers was unethical and immoral.
As an organization, we expect the highest level of integrity and moral strength from everyone in the integrated highway patrol and the force at large. We would like to reiterate that there is no place in our institution for individuals who choose to manipulate the law, force discipline and policy for their selfish interests. We call upon all officers to desist from such behavior and continue using recordings of crime incidents strictly for evidentiary purposes.
