Man arrested for impersonating police officer

The Police in Kampala have arrested a man identified as Rujeru Frank Sabiti alias D/ASP Kajjeru Frank Sabiti for allegedly making documents without authority and impersonation.

The suspect was arrested on Monday after one Wovugira Emma Yonah went to Kampala Metropolitan Police, South headquarters to consult on what action can be taken on an officer who has failed to fulfil his promise.

According to Wovugira, the suspect went to him on the 5th June 2020 and asked to hire his car UBD 662 C TX. He left his warrant card (identity card) behind as security and hired the car at Shs130,000 per day. 

Luke Owoyesigyire the Kampala Metroplitan police spokesperson says the suspect failed to fulfil his obligation prompting the victim to go and report to police.
Upon receiving the warrant card, the detectives consulted Police Headquarters to verify the authenticity of the document and it was established that such a name and file number don't exist.

The force number on the card however, was for a Police Constable attached to another unit. 

The file has been forwarded to DPP for Perusal as inquiries into the matter continue.
