Gen. Muhoozi Tells CID Police Officers To Promote Government Goals While Fighting Crimes
The minister is, however, hopeful that the officers will choose to be the good “seed for a better CID, a better Uganda Police Force and a better Uganda”.
The Minister of State for Internal Affairs Gen. David Muhoozi has asked police officers at the CID headquarters in Kibuli to understand and promote the goals of the government.
This, he said, they should do while keeping law and order, maintaining peace and stability and foster socio-economic development and transformation.
This is a good calling you have chosen, but one with lots of expectations, the minister who had paid a courtesy visit to CID headquarters said in his address to the cops including heads of department and regional CIDs.

“The challenge to you is to either be as tall as the expectations we have in you, of erasing the trust deficit in CID and Police generally and being the seeds for a respectable, accountable, effective and professional CID/ Police Force,” he said.
“You need to be disciplined; you need to be ideologically clear. You need to be patriotic and loyal to your country, be smart and curious,” said Gen Muhoozi.
“Always be on top of the game, to beat crime in all its aspects- homicide, narcotics, sexual offences, cybercrime, and Crime against the state etc,” he added.
