An angry Amuriat then promised that by May next year, the area Regional Police Commander will be forced to retire due to such behavior.
“We are going to war. The war does not require faint hearted people, be courageous, and tighten your belts. Museveni has deployed in the whole Soroti, his personnel here using tax payers’ money. I want to say to the RPC wherever he is, that come May next year, he is a candidate for retirement. Because we are not going to have police officers who violate people’s rights, who hurt Ugandans who they have to protect” he said.
