Business at the police headquarters in Naguru, Kampala, was on Thursday disrupted by a Member of Parliament who stormed the office of the Inspector General of Police, protesting what he called the mishandling of a case file of a murdered relative.
Mr Gaffa Mbwatekamwa, the Kasambya County MP in Mubende District, attempted to enter the office of Mr Martins Okoth-Ochola.
However, the police guards restrained him, forcing him to sit on the stairs and vowing not to leave until his grievance was handled.
“I am tired of being tossed about. I won’t leave until I see the IGP,” the MP insisted, drawing the attention of senior police officers, including the spokesperson, Emilian Kayima.
Kayima explained to the legislator that the IGP was busy in meetings and could not meet him. However, this did not deter the MP, who remained seated on the stairs.
Later, Kayima called Mr Ochola on phone and he talked to the MP, which calmed him down.
Mr Mbwatekamwa later told journalists that the IGP agreed to meet him today, Friday.
He also explained that his anger stems from the release of a suspect in the murder of his relative after the case file was transferred from Mubende District to Kampala.
