Police has launched a manhunt for its bus that went missing on Sunday night. Geoffrey Bangirana, the Director Logistics and Engineering in Uganda Police Force announced the disappearance of the bus registration number UP 5484 on Monday afternoon. 

A police driver identified as Corporal Geoffrey Mwase is said to have left with bus on Sunday night and was last seen on the Northern Bypass in Kampala at 1:00am on Sunday. 

A reliable source at the Police transport office on Kinda Road Industrial area told URN on condition of anonymity that Corporal Mwase took the bus from the police yard in Namanve without authorisation as required by the Police transport guidelines.

Bangirana received the information in the morning and tried to contact Mwase in vain as he neither picked nor returned the calls.

"The bus was being driven by Corporal Mwase but attempts to contact him have been futile. If seen impound vehicle, arrest occupants and inform police head operation room, “Bangirana said in a message to all police commanders, all units and police headquarters.

This is the first time police has issued such a message against its own driver.
