The Former Minister of Ethics and Integrity Miria Matembe has slammed claims by the Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura indictaing that he doesn’t know the Kiboko Squad.
The squad recently whipped the President of Forum for Democratic Change leader Dr. Kiiza Besigye when he tried to stage a rally in Kampala to protest the continued government failure to reform the Uganda Electoral laws and disbandment of the Electoral commission to ensure free and fair elections in the coming 2011 Uganda general elections.
This is the second time in a space of about three years that an anonymous group of people now commonly known as the Kiboko squad have come to beat demonstrators and then disappear in unclear circumstances.
Matembe told journalists at Parliament today that Kayihura was just pretending in trying to show his ignorance of the Kiboko squad.
She says that athough Kayihura tries to hide behind curtains and deny knowledge of the origin of the Kiboko squad, the people of Uganda are not stupid to follow his false claims.
Matembe says that the government of Uganda is behind the Kiboko squad however much it tries to wash its hands clean over the matter.
