Following the brutal flogging of street vendors on Wednesday last week, the Chief of Defense Forces (CDF), Gen.David Muhoozi on Monday (yesterday) met some of the vendors who were flogged by security operatives as they enforced the president’s directives on fighting the novel Covid-19 pandemic.
The CDF boss Gen Muhoozi apologized to the vendors who were affected and called upon the security officers to handle citizens with care.
“Their handling was high handed, unjustified and regrettable. I do apologies to them and to fellow countrymen. The culprits were apprehended and will be dealt with,”Gen.Muhoozi said.
The CDF boss also added that since the incident, security had revised their instructions given to juniors by commanders to ensure better supervision and drawing of elaborate rules of engagement in a bid to give better services to the public.
The Local Defense Unit and Police officers have been at the helm of brutalizing citizens of Uganda a behavior that has seen many question their training.
