The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Martins Okoth Ochola has dropped Anatoli Katungwesi as Regional Police Commander – RPC – Kampala Metropolitan Police – KMP/East.
Well-placed sources say a message sent out last week recalled Katungwesi back to the Police Headquarters in Naguru. SSP Henry Kintu who was his deputy was elevated to the position of RPC.
Katunwesi’s sacking followed our story titled “Top Police boss sucked into Kira land grab sagas, dragged to court”
The prime pieces of land that brought Katungwesi problems are comprised on Block 185, Plot 385 at Kito – Namugongo at Kyadondo Block 222 Plots 1770, 1771, 1774, 1910, 3912, 3913, 3914, 3915 and 3916 at Namugongo, and another on Plot 206. Well-placed sources say they (Plots) were recently bought by Yusuf Semakula. However, some grabbers remained chasing it with claims that they have a stake in them. The land grab cartel was working very closely with the Katungwesi, despite the fact that the court recently pronounced itself on the matter. The decision (of the court) was implemented by both the Criminal Investigations Directorate and the Land Police Protection Unit.
