IGP Ochola gives Director Bangirana hours to vacate office or be forced out

In Business On

The Police director in charge of Logistics and Engineering, AIGP Godfrey Bangiranarisks being kicked out of office by court for failure to do so voluntarily.

In July, the Inspector-General of Police, Martin Okoth Ochola asked Bangirana to vacate office as he awaits his contract to be renewed after expiry.

In a letter through his lawyers of Kiiza and Mugisha Advocates, Uganda Young Democrats member, Isaac Maddo has written to Bangirana giving him only a few hours to vacate office or proceed with the court procedure that will see him kicked out forcefully.

“You certainly understand that the contract on the basis of which you occupied the office of the Director of Logistics and Engineering expired on July 6, 2019 and the same has never been renewed. Therefore, the continued stay in the same office is illegal, capricious and abuse of office,” reads in part the letter to AIGP Bangirana.

“Your continued stay in office undermines the rule of law, accountability and good governance which tenants of public administration are secured by the 1995 Uganda Constitution.”

In the letter, the police director has been reminded that as a member of the police force whose mandate is to keep law and order, he should be the last person to break the law and cause disorder by staying in office long after expiry of his contract.

“This is, therefore, to demand that you immediately hand over office as advised by the IGP and also refund all monetary and other benefits you have enjoyed as a result of illegally staying in office after expiry of your term.”

According to the letter also copied to the Inspectorate of Government, Attorney General, Internal Affairs Minister and the Police Professional Standards Unit, AIGP Bangirana is supposed to apologise for refusal to vacate office in time.
