Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Police are holding a man accused of masquerading as a police officer attached to Katwe police station in Kampala. Luke Owoyesigyire, the Deputy Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson identifies the suspect as Frank Rujeru Sabiti, Detective Assistant Superintendent of Police Kajjeru.

Owoyesigyire says the suspect was arrested on Tuesday evening after a man identified as Emmah Yonah Wovugira approached Kampala metropolitan police south headquarters in Katwe to consult on what can be done to an officer who fails to fulfill his obligations.

According to Wovugira, the suspect hired his vehicle UBD 662C, TX on June 5th 2020 at Shillings 130,000 per day and left a warrant card as security. He however failed to fulfill his obligation prompting Wovugira to report the matter.
