If we’re incompetent, hire private investigators- Polices tells Nantaba

The Police has asked Ida Nantaba, the state minister for Information Communication and Technology (ICT), to hire private investigators to handle her attempted assassination case if she feels Police have bungled up the case.

“If the minister cannot trust Police in the investigations, she can ask other security organs, such as Internal Security Organization (ISO) and External Security Organization (ESO), which have the capacity to investigate a case of this magnitude or hire private investigators,” Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said.

Speaking during a thanksgiving ceremony in Kayunga district on Saturday, Nantaba questioned why Police was taking long to investigate the case. She also demanded to know who ordered Corporal David Ssali to kill Ronald Ssebulime, a key suspect in the March incident.

Nantaba told a gathering in Kayunga that since the incident, President Yoweri Museveni advised her to keep indoors. Enanga said investigations are still underway, but hastened to blame the minister for not being co-operative to aid investigations.
