Charge against a police officer who forcefully ate a rolex without paying dropped

Former Buyende DPC Muhammad Kirumira has won a case where he is charged of forcefully eating a rolex of one of his junior officers

“I want to tell this court that Afande Kirumira is a bad person. He used to eat people’s things without paying. He also ate my rolex and he did not pay me. I was operating a chapatti stall at the time,” Mr Bukenya said.

The charge was dropped on Tuesday by police prosecutor Catherine Kisemererwa after Joseph Bukenya failed to appear before police court to testify against Kirumira.

The maverick police officer, who is currently on bail, is facing a number of other charges including offences related to torture, corruption and unnecessary exercise of authority.

While on bail, he is supposed to report to report to the Professional Standards Unit everyday and refrain himself from talking to media.
