AIGP Asan Kasingye Defends Police After The Demolition Of St Peter’s CoU Ndeeba

The Assistant Inspector General of Police, Asan Kasingye has fortified Uganda Police Force after their involvement in the demolishing of the Anglican St Peter’s Church Ndeeba on Monday.

Kasingye’s defence comes after the arrest of the District Police Commander Katwe  SP David Epedu, OC Station Ndeeba Police Station ASP Mugira Yeko Kato and Field Force Unit (FFU) Commander KMP/South Region, ASP Isabirye Kaloli over their involvement in the demolition.

Through his Twitter handle, AIGP Kasigye proved his side while replying to @isma1589 a twitter user who asked him if the church doesn’t concern him.

In response, Kasigye wrote thus.. “ I am a member of COU. I am not whether we are discussing my faith. I thought we were discussing justice issues. Many people since morning are blaming the Police. My point is that this was a civil matter that was disposed of by courts.”

In April, the Ministry of Lands halted all kinds of land evictions during the time when the country is on lockdown to protect the rights and obligations of both the landlords and tenants on registered land in the country.

Lands Minister Beti Kamya said that government was informed of impending or threatened illegal land evictions of tenants on registered land and customary landowners on unregistered land in Kiryandongo, Hoima, Mubende, Mityana, Kassanda, Wakiso, Luwero, Nakaseke, Nakasongola, Masaka, Mayuge, Napak, Kotido, Abim, Mukono, Kayunga, Wakiso, Kaberamaido, Bunyangabu, Kampala, Kiboga, Kyankwanzi and Mbale.
