Gen. Muhoozi visits CID headquarters, and lectures officers on policing. The Minister of State for Internal Affairs, Hon. David Muhoozi has today Tuesday 9th August 2022 paid a courtesy visit to CID headquarters in Kibuli where he met all the heads of department and regional CIDs.
The Minister of State for Internal Affairs, Gen. David Muhoozi visited CID Headquarters and addressed the Officers on strategic priorities and gaps in the performance of the Directorate.
In his address, the minister advised the officers to understand and promote the goals of the Government in keeping law and order, maintaining peace and stability, to foster socio-economic development and transformation.
“This is an upright calling you have chosen, but one with lots of expectations. The task 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.
The Minister also emphasized the need for discipline among the officers.
“You need to be self-disciplined and orderly; you need to be ideologically clear. You need to be patriotic and loyal to your country, be smart and curious,” Gen Muhoozi said
“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.
The minister said he is hopeful that the officers will choose to be the good “seed for a better CID, a better Uganda Police Force, and a better Uganda”.
Gen. Muhoozi is the former Chief of Defence forces of Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), he attended the Uganda Military Academy, attended the Company Commander course at Monduli, Tanzania, the Senior Command and Staff College course in Ghana, and later he was admitted to the Royal College of Defence Studies.
