As you read this from your leading news hub, Daily Express Uganda, 220 police trainees are already thinking about who can secure their future by donating to them at least a piglet to each in a bid to start up a new life after betraying themselves by forging papers to join the force hence discontinuation.
This has been confirmed by Police mouthpiece Fred Enanga who has since revealed that, “We would like to inform the public that a total of 220 trainees, who had reported for the Initial Probationer Police training course, at the Police Training School at Kabalye, Masindi, have been discontinued from the course on medical grounds and falsification of their academic documents.”
Enanga says that all trainees underwent very thorough individual medical assessments at the training school, where it was established that 38 trainees, had medical conditions that could not meet the inherent requirements of the training and the subsequent operational policing roles in the field. They were as a result discontinued.
An additional 182 trainees, were discontinued after though verification of their academic documents. Upon thorough scrutiny, they were found with forged documents, others had less than 4 credits, failures in English other than the credit required, failure in Mathematics other than the pass required, while others were found to be overaged, which automatically ruled them out of the training. All the forged academic documents were confiscated and exhibited at Masindi CPS, where investigations were instituted.
“The public is reminded that recruitment into the police is strictly by rule and merit, a process that cannot be compromised,” said Enanga.
