It’s a hoax; Police says of alleged probe of its procurement officers

The Uganda Police Force is not probing any of its procurement officers regarding the purchase of Hino trucks as alleged by some media outlets, Police Spokesperson Andrew Felix Kawesi has said.

Kawesi was recently reacting to reports that three of its senior officers; Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Lenny Twinomugisha Lenny, Director ICT Amos Ngabirano and Director Logistics and Engineering Godfrey Bangirana were under investigations over the botched purchase of 15 Hino trucks from Japan.”

Kawesi said: “These allegations are not true that our senior officers are under investigations is a hoax.”

Kawesi added that before the purchase of these 15 tracks was made, a technical team from the Ministry of Works and Police went to Japan and did pre-manufacturing inspections after which the tracks were assembled in Uganda and were deployed for work.

Kawesi said: “No body is under investigations in police because these trucks are the ones that Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) used while relocating Ugandans from South Sudan to Uganda and no technical errors have ever happened on them because they are working efficiently. So I wonder where investigations come from?”

Kawesi said that Police abandoned Chinese trucks in favour of Japanese-made trucks after discovering that Chinese trucks were ‘very expensive’ to maintain in terms of fuel consumption and repairs.
