The Bukomansimbi District officer-in-charge of Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department-CIID has been suspected over bribery allegations.

Steven Musinguzi was suspended following repeated complaints of bribery labelled against him by people seeking police services.

The Greater Masaka Regional Police Commander Enoch Baine announced the suspension on Thursday, during a community meeting held in Bukomansimbi town council.

Last week, Police in arrested Abdul Muyingo, a crime preventer in Kitanda Sub County and his wife on allegations of child trafficking, but the suspects were released and fled before being charged. 

Residents led by Safina Namukwaya pinned Musinguzi of having connived with suspects to frustrate the case.

Baine decided that Musingusi steps aside and be investigated by the regional Police Professional Standard Unit-PSU.  

Baine explained that he is going to request police human resource directorate to deploy another officer to help streamline the police operations in Bukomansimbi.

He adds that he had instructed the arrest of the suspected child kidnappers, but was surprised when they were released without his knowledge.
