Uganda police has refuted a report that a female police officer who was spotted on Kenya airways as Kyadondo East member of parliament Hon Robert Kyagulanyi was coming back to Uganda from United States.
Police made the statement clarifying on media reports that a police officer identified as Pamela Kentaro was on the mission to spy on the legislator in the US.
Kentaro was spotted aboard Kenya Airways with Wine in Nairobi on Thursday sparking accusation she was a state agent who was working for the regime..
Authorities have made further clarifications saying their officer has been in Mombasa on a training workshop.
In a statement, police say, corroborating with Kentaro’s earlier clarification, that their officer and Bobi Wine have known each other for a while.
Kentaro has also been providing security to Bobi Wine on events/shows at his One Love Beach in Busabala, police said in a statement.
“Police cannot deploy anybody who is already exposed in uniform to do an undercover operation, more so someone who is already known to the target as a Police Officer”. Police statement read in part.
Police further added that it is false allegations and warned the media against making such misleading statement.
“It’s therefore false to allege that the officer was on a spying mission. Covert operations are not done the way social media is trying to portray”. Police added.
Bobi Wine returned on Thursday after spending weeks in the the United States where he had gone for medical check up after being injured in Arua Municipality by-election campaign brawl.
