Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola has sent out an apology to the Catholic Church and to Retired Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa over the unbecoming behaviour of his officers in a recent operation.
The IGP sent out a delegation of senior police officers led by Chief Political Commissar AIGP Asan Kasingye to personally apologize to the cleric.
At his home in Masaka, the team delivered apologies to him, his family and the catholic church over the disruptions caused during the thanksgiving ceremony of the Mbogo clan at the clan headquarters in Mugulu village, in Singo.
The team told Bishop Kaggwa that the IGP had carried out a thorough review and evaluation of the incident, and “acknowledged the operational lapse which led to the use of teargas that spread and impacted on the congregation and the public.”
Earlier on Monday, the police also issued an apology to Buganda Kingdom over the same incident.
