We are aware that many Police officers have been promoted days to the 2016 Presidential elections.
This in one way or another may make some get tempted to break the law simply to impress the appointing authority.
I wish to sound a warning. Today we live in a global village where the likes of Domic Ongwen.
The warrant of arrest for Dominic Ongwen listed seven counts on the basis of his individual criminal responsibility (article 25(3)(b) of the Statute) allegedly committed on or about 20 May 2004 at the Lukodi IDP Camp in the Gulu District, Uganda: for three counts of crimes against humanity (murder; enslavement; and other inhumane acts) and four counts of war crimes (murder; cruel treatment; attack against the civilian population; and pillaging).
In whatever the law enforcers get involved in during the Polling time and thereafter, they should operate within the law.
James Aurien had been DPC at Mukono, however, his rank and the roles he played for the state of Uganda have not saved him for having murdered his wife and throwing the body at Lugazi Post Office.
The jail term for Aurien should serve as an eye opener to any overzealous officer who may practice impunity when people get to express dissatisfaction following rigging of the presidential poll.
Technology is so good that virtually all that any criminal officer may do can be recorded instantly and used against him/her.
