The Police Disciplinary Court has charged two officers under the 999 response system for discreditable conduct for improperly impounding motor vehicles.

SCP Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, reported that the officers assisted Platinum Finance Services employees in seizing a motor vehicle with the registration number UBB 033Y, a Hiace Drone, that was parked at Mamu Garage due to an overdue debt owed by the car’s owner, Kyarimpa Deogratius.

“Sgt Lokomol Joseph and Sgt Mutenya Joseph left their patrol beat on July 4, 2023, at around 10:00 a.m. without seeking clearance from the commander of 999 systems or the Police controller to unlawfully impound a motor vehicle from a garage without a court order,” Enanga said.

Enanga strongly condemns such acts of impurity in the Force.

“As an organisation, we expect high levels of discipline and professionalism from every Police officer. We continue to be transparent with our actions to the Public, whom we protect and serve,” he added.

He pledged to discipline any officers who chose to behave in such a dishonourable way, and if the disciplinary court found them guilty of breaking the police code of conduct, they would either receive a reprimand or be let go from the force.

The vehicle in question was taken from Platinum Financial Services’ parking lot in Banda and parked at Old Kampala Station pending transfer to the owner or Mamu Garage.
