The National Police Service will from now withdraw security detail from VIPs who are involved or suspected in crime until they are cleared by the courts.
Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai on Monday said that those VIPs who are civilian firearm holders shall have their certificates cancelled and weapons are withdrawn.
“It is the expectations of the service that the VIPs who are accorded this privilege shall reciprocate by being law-abiding citizens at all times to avoid compromising and demeaning the very essence of which the police is mandated,” read part of the statement.
