President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has Monday summoned to his country home Rwakitura the Inspector General of Police Mr Okoth Martin Ochola for an urgent meeting it has emerged.
Sources within the security circle told us that the IGP was summoned to explain the status at which the police SACCO is performing to the Head of State.
Sources that attended the meeting at Rwakitura alongside the police chief told this website that besides other national security related matters; the president was more worried about the poor performance of the police SACCO called Exodus.
Ochola was put into task to explain why the men in uniforms always faced several challenges in accessing the services of the micro finance department which include withdraw of saving and accessing loans.
Ochola was also questioned why the SAACO has for the past two years failed to hold Annual General Meeting.
Last week, over four thousand officers from upcountry are said to have visited the SAACO head office after failing to get the services at their regional branches which according to security experts created a security vacuum in many areas.
Several police officers on many occasions have come out as whistleblowers about the unbearable conditions through which the SACCO takes them.
It’s noted that at one time officers were told to withdraw a maximum of Shs 80,000.
The SACCO also set only two days in a week for officers to access the services which cause long queues at the headquarters.
The source further revealed that, the president also tasked Ochola to explains the police brutality on members of oppositions which has greatly affected the country image before the international communities.
He tasked police chief to come up with a better way of dealing with stubborn opposition politicians without necessarily using too much force.
Police has recently come into limelight after several clashes with opposition supporters drawing international condemnation.
