ERIAS LUKWAGO: OKOTH OCHOLA A FIGUREHEAD, SABITI MUZEEI DE FACTO IGP

That said, Ugandans shouldn’t be excited about Mr. Museveni’s fudging.

It’s granted that Ochola would be a perfect choice for the job of the Inspector General of Police under a functional state structure.

Even the appointing authority is fully aware that he is going to be a titular figurehead as his Deputy, Brig. Sabiiti Muzeyi calls the shots.

He is a career police officer with an impeccable record and has risen through the ranks.

However, he’s assuming a herculean task of superintending over a rogue institution, which has long been derailed from its conventional role.

The French Bourbon Monarchy collapsed in 1789, largely because Louis VI inherited a structure that was inherently despotic yet he had a relatively humane and liberal disposition.

What we have in place now is a regime protection police and Ochola has no capacity to realign it back to its Constitutional mandate, his professional attributes notwithstanding.

Even the appointing authority is fully aware that he is going to be a titular figurehead as his Deputy, Brig. Sabiiti Muzeyi calls the shots.

As a matter of fact, Brig. Sabiiti Muzeeyi is the defacto IGP. The militarization of police will therefore continue unabated.
