The Inspector-General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola has ordered Professional Standards Unit (PSU) to probe traffic alert squad commander Moses Mutabingwa.  

Ochola's order signed by Christine Uwaamwezi emanates from a petition filed by three policemen Sgt Idi Kalulu, Constable Tony Omara and Anthony Wanaga, accusing the latter of suspending them based on nepotism, sectarianism, unfair treatment and unprofessional conduct.

Mutabingwa has reportedly usurped powers of traffic police investigations commander Pamela Kentaro and reportedly suspends officers without Kentaro's knowledge.  

Ochola has directed PSU commander John Okalany to swiftly conduct the investigations and immediately table the report to him.   

"The purpose of this letter is to require your office to investigate the allegations and submit a report to this office," reads the letter titled petition against impunity and possible substantial miscarriage of justice vide Nateete traffic police TSD 07/19/04/2019.  

Early this year Ochola ordered probe of more than 100 traffic policemen and women accused of extorting money from drivers. Some of the accused officers were suspended while others were transferred to upcountry police places such Masindi, Kasese, Nakasongola and Masaka.
