Kampala Capital City Authority Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has kicked out SSP Kituuma Rusoke from the authority headquarters saying that his services are no longer required.
In a letter to the IGP, Lukwago said that SSP Rusoke for the past five years has been illegally deployed at the authority’s head offices.
Lukwago informed the police boss that his officer was wrongly assigned the duty of heading KCCA enforcement team, which is not a police force unit.
He accuses the embattled police officer of manning illegal operations in the city which have led to loss of lives to some city dwellers.
‘‘Following a brutal and illegal operation that claimed the life of a street vendor, one Olivia Basemera, the authority that convened on 16th August 2018 resolved that he should be reprimanded and sent back to police headquarters,’’ said the Lord Mayor.
The city Mayor added that Rusoke’s continued stay at KCCA is a clear manifestation of impunity and accordingly invited the police boss to respect the authority’s resolution by recalling the officer back to the headquarters.
Rusoke was deployed at city hall and designated as head of security unit, a position he has held for five years.
