The retired Assistant Commissioner of Police Sam Omala, claims that he was never appreciated by the Police Force despite his exceptional performance when he was still a serving officer.
While appearing on NBS TV a few days ago, the retired Assistant Commissioner of Police said he was never appreciated by the Police Force despite his exceptional performance when he was still a serving officer.
“I used to work, but the credit would always go to my bosses. I slept at Besigye’s gate for seven days during ‘Walk to Work’ protests but none of that was remembered,” Omala cursed during an interview.
He further said that his job while in Police was a “job beyond salary” which entailed a lot of challenges. He also went on to reveal that if it was not for him and the late Andrew Felix Kaweesi, the current Sabalwanyi’s government would be no more.
“The Uganda Police was very disjointed at the time, enemies of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) were so many at the time, and if we did not stand on our two legs to say “NO”, this government would have collapsed at that time.” He said
Omala also went on to accuse his former boss Gen Kale Kayihura of ignoring his pleas to meet the President.
“Maybe he did not want to build my name, police officers were known to be corrupt but I said no! The opposition was bribing me with Shs 200 million, I believe the president would have gratified me, I blame Kayihura.”He added.
However, Ugandans via social media warned him that he is most that he is likely to end up like fallen ASP Muhammad Kirumira if he does not refrain himself from making attacking statements against his former bosses.
By the time of his death, commander Kirumira was a strong critic of Uganda Police administration and sources reveals that the statements he used to make while critising his bosses were the root cause of him to loss his life.
It should be noted that the former Buyende District Police Commander, Muhammad Kirumira, was shot dead near his residence in Bulenga, Wakiso district in 2018.
