By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
Police in Mbarara have arrested a police officer for allegedly ordering the arrest and embarrassment of a bride during a wedding ceremony.
Sergeant Richard Ngabirano, an investigating officer has been arrested, whereas four of his juniors are still on the run after the Saturday night incident in which they arrested Christine Natuhwera
The incident stemmed from an earlier case in which Natuhwera, who working for Henry Mirembe made a shs8 million loss as she worked as a bank agent, prompting the latter to take the matter to police where he reported a case of theft.
The case was investigated by police and later file forwarded to the Resident State Attorney in Mbarara who advised the duo to negotiate and reach a middle ground but Mirembe was not satisfied with this decision by the state attorney, prompting him to petition the offices of the regional DPP who later sanctioned the file again.
According to the police spokesperson, when the file was sanctioned again, the four police officers in collusion with the complainant sought to embarrass Natuhwera during her wedding .
