The Minister of State for Internal Affairs, General David Muhoozi, on Tuesday paid a courtesy visit to the Criminal Investigations Directorate headquarters in Kibuli where he met all the heads of department and regional CIDs.
In his address, the minister urged 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 a good calling you have chosen but one with lots of expectations. The challenge to you is to 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.
General Muhoozi further emphasized the need for discipline among the officers.
“You need to be disciplined; you need to be ideologically clear. You need to be patriotic and loyal to your country, be smart and curious in all aspects like homicide, narcotics, sexual offences, cybercrime, and crime against the state, among others,” he added.
However, the minister was hopeful that the officers will choose to be the good seed for a better CID and a better Uganda.
