The Director of Operations Uganda Police Edward Ochom has ordered
for fresh investigations into the death of a Boda Boda Cyclist in Masaka.

Central Police Station on July 2 and doused himself with petrol claiming that
the traffic police officers demanded a bribe to release his motorcycle.

investigations to establish what prompted Walugembe to set himself ablaze.
