Namutumba Police Boss faces dismissal over illegal confinement of Court servers

Namutumba, (UG):- The Officer in Charge of the Criminal Investigations Directorate at Namutumba Police Station in Namutumba District, Ms Stella Nankunda is on the verge of being dismissed from the police force after two court process servers dragged him to court accusing him of allegedly ordering their confinement without justification.

The two, identified as Richard Mwesigwa and Michael Kaluusi in their lawsuit filed before the Chief Magistrate’s Court at Iganga accuse the police boss of ordering their confinement during the effect service of the court process on December 14, 2023 on one Sulaina Logose who is the defendant in civil suit No.46 of 2023 and a resident of Namutumba.

The duo further state that in the process of effecting service, they were assaulted by Ms Logose which prompted them to proceed to Namutumba police station to report a case of assault.

“That while at Namutumba police station, the said Logose came along since she was a resident of the area and shouted at the top of her voice on how they were wasting time since the police in Namutumba were under her control including the respondent (Ms Nankunda) and nothing would be done to her,” reads in part the court documents.

According to the documents which this publication has seen, it is further alleged that after a while, Ms Nankunda came along and immediately upon interacting with Logose directed that the two court servers were not to leave the station contending that they were under arrest unless she directed otherwise.

The two claim that they pleaded with Ms Nankunda to know the grounds of their arrest but all in vain as she continued being harsh to them exchanging all kinds of threats assuring them how she was the O.C.C.I.D of the area and was at liberty to keep them at the station for whatever duration.

They now want court to compell an order that the respondent be declared unfit to hold or serve in public office again, be dismissed from the Uganda Police Force, and issue a public apology and a permanent injunction against the respondent from continued violation of the applicants’ rights and costs of the suit.
