Police drivers operating in Kampala Metropolitan Area have been ordered to park official vehicles at their stations immediately after work, Chimp Corps report.
The order is mainly directed to drivers of police buses, mini-busES and other official SUVs.
The development follows last week’s incident in which a brand new police bus was reported stolen on Christmas Eve.
ChimpReports understands the Fleet and Transport officer (FTO) for Kampala district, CP Frank Kugonza on Monday summoned all regional police drivers to the headquarters in Naguru where he issued the new guidelines.
He also informed drivers stringent rules in the fleet department would soon be announced by the director of logistics.
Drivers of all non-patrol vehicles were told to immediately start parking vehicles at their respective stations by 5:00pm of which non-compliance would “attract disciplinary actions.”
All police bus and mini-bus drivers were also instructed to park the vehicles at police headquarters every day after duty.
Some drivers told ChimpReports the new rules would lead to “inconveniences” as the vehicles served as their “mode of transport” to their places of aboard.
Police last arrested one of its bus drivers identified as CPL/DRV Mwase who had reportedly disappeared with one of the force’s new buses.
Later on December 26, deputy police spokesperson Patrick Onyango said the bus was impounded in Mityana district.
