The death of ASP Muhammad Kirumira, the former Buyende district Police Commander [DPC] has reawakened the lost pain many Ugandan had conceived after the assassination of the former Arua Municipality MP, Ibrahim Abiriga.
Abiriga was gunned down by unknown assailants on 8, June this year while approaching his home in Kawanda, Wakiso district.
While Abiriga’s soul is resting, four months after his gruesome murder, Ugandans are again grieved after the gruesome murder of Kirumira.
Kirumira who was killed on 8 September, 2018, was 34 years. He was driving back home alongside a woman, Resty Nalinya earlier thought to be his wife.
His death has come as a surprise to a man, who until his suspension from Police was a ‘quite man’. Kirumira became country’s darling when he openly told the truth about corruption and bad dealings in Uganda Police Force, the revelations he faced with suspension from the police force.
Kizza Besigye, the four time presidential aspirant and former FDC party president called on Ugandans to unite and throw away President Museveni and his NRM government out of power.
Besigye, speaking at the burial of the assassinated former DPC, Kirumira says Ugandans have been oppressed by the regime.
Besigye also called on Uganda to use people power to oust Musevni from power, adding that it’s the only way Museveni and his government can be eliminated.
“We have been sidelined by the oppressors. They are on the other side and the oppressed the other side. Kirumira’s voice is now silenced but for those he left won’t be silenced,” Besigye said.
Mr. Besigye baptized Kirumira as a strong voice who had sacrificed himself to liberate Uganda.
Meanwhile, President Museveni calls those assassins who have been killing innocent Ugandans as pigs.
Mr Museveni said some of the urban criminals are still using the small gaps in the country by causing crimes.
However, he said those gaps are now being worked on – Museveni citied the current installation of CCTV cameras in Kampala and some urnab centers in the country.
“Awaiting installation of CCTV cameras everywhere, we are going to reactivate the Luweero methods to deal with this criminal,” he reveals.
“We are to stop these pigs by not relying on the old police methods,” Museveni said on Saturday at State House where he chaired the sub-committee on security.
