Following a viral video in which a military police officer was seen assaulting a traffic officer, the UPDF spokesperson Brig. Gen Felix Kulaigye has said the force has launched investigations into the matter. The incident happened at Mukwano mall along Kyaggwe road at Kiseka market, when military police officers driving a green vehicle registration number D02DF08P ordered the traffic officer to clear the way for them in vain leading to a scuffle.
In a statement, Kulaigye said the incident is regrettable. “The actions of this soldier are reprehensible and are not representative of UPDF as an institution that is known for its discipline and being a people’s army.”
