The Justice and constitution affairs Minister Maj. Gen Kahinda Otafiire has came out openly to say that he is happy with former IGP Kale Kayihuras firing.
While speaking at the burial of former Mutara Sub County chairman Jackson Kaginda in Mutara, Mitooma district, Gen Otafiire noted that he prayed for Kayihuras fate and God answered his prayers.
The row started some time back when Kayihura refused to allow three people including the late Kagindas son presented to him by the former to join police despite the agreement between the two.
Kahinda noted that, he was very angry at Kayihura but couldnt do anything other than keeping quiet and praying to God to pay the former.
I approached the then head of police (Kayihura) and presented the three names to be entered into police, we agreed but when the list came they were nowhere to be seen, Kahinda said.
He added that I told him that the then IGP that what you have done to me, God will pay you and He paid him (Kayihura). I kept quiet and prayed.
Kayihura was fired by President Museveni at the beginning of this year and was later arrested and is being tried in the General Court Martial.
Kahinda pledged to continue supporting the family of the late Kaginda despite failing to enter their son into police.
