 While commissioning, Gen. Kayihura said that according to the law both the giver and receiver of the bribe are all guilty  therefore, people who normally write reports that Police are the most corrupt, they should look into the law before saying that.

 

 

“The giver of the bribe are the principal criminals, you tempt the Police officers with money, both of you are criminals, the principal culprits are the one who gives, that means Ugandans are the most corrupt not the Police, check the law and see what it says,” Gen. Kayihura said.
