Police Director in charge of Logistics, Godfrey Bangirana has been ordered out of office by The High Court Civil Division.
Isaac Maddo, member of UYD accused Bangirana of wasting taxpayer’s money.
Justice Henrietta Wolayo further stopped Bangirana from drawing any salaries and emoluments from government until all investigations are done. She further ruled that Bangirana’s continued illegal stay in office puts the image of Uganda Police Force in bad shape.
Bangirana’s Directorate is being investigated on a number of issues including the expenditure of more than Shs.10 billion on repairing a defective police Helicopter.He is also being investigated for inflating the cost of constructing Natete Police Station from Shs. 10 billion to more than Shs. 100 billion.
But on Thursday, things took a twist when the Attorney General came out and defended Bangirana, saying that according to Police Records, Bangirana is still doing Police work and is entitled to salary and other packages.
The Attorney General further added that Bangirana has higher chances of getting his contract renewed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
