They are not police officers and we are looking for them,Kayima said.
The deputy army spokesperson, Lt.Col. Deo Akiiki too, though in not many words distanced the army from the men who have now become a ball as everyone is kicking them away from themselves.

A number of similar incidents have in the past where plain clothed security operatives have arrested suspects in broad day light just like the incident near Christ the King.
