Applying the general principle of law above to the current spate of crimes/killings/abductions in Uganda, it would not be erroneous to arrive at the conclusion that the police chiefs/commanders/ and all security chiefs are as criminally culpable as the cowardly individuals(s) committing these macabre killings.

In organised societies, they would have taken political responsibility and resigned, an independent/transparent inquiry would have been instituted or in the very least public pressure would have mounted on them to resign.

But in Uganda, these criminals will wear peeps and with glossy faces, expensive perfumes, gold watches and a taxpayer-paid convoy of cars, address the press blaming all else but themselves – they see no failure on their part, they see this as a witchhunt by a foe here or a rival there. What nonsense.

We have allowed them to get away with it for far too long.

How many families must lose their loved ones for us to demand both criminal and political responsibility from those we pay to protect us? How many.

The security chiefs owe us all a duty and if they are unable to perform that duty, they can go and attend to their families and farms.

We do not want your fancy press statements that the press parrot in the name of news, we want accountability.

As we look for the killers, those responsible and are in plain sight must be pursued politically and legally.
