The Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister, Maj. Gen Kahinda Otafire has advised Security Minister Lt. Gen Henry Tumukunde and the Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura to handle their differences amicably.
Otafiire told journalists at parliament on Wednesday afternoon that it was unfortunate that the difference between the two generals had spilled into the public domain.
The minister spoke about the bickering between his comrades shortly after appearing before the Human Rights Committee where he was summoned to explain issues relating to human rights violations and the persistent congestion in prisons among others.
Asked about the rift between Tumukunde and Kayihura, Otafire describing the bickering as a fraternal quarrel, saying that the two need to know that people who work together have differences but they don’t allow them to spill to the public.
He appealed to the two security heads to sit down and resolve their differences out, but hastened to add that the conflict hasn’t in anyway affected security in the country.
The rift between the Security Minister and IGP has been a subject of public discussion in the past few months.
Recently, President Yoweri Museveni spoke out about the quarrel in Luweero, noting that it was a big problem that will be solved.
