Two police officers attached to the traffic department are being probed for allegedly physically assaulting an elderly woman in Busia District.
A video, which was discreetly recorded at the end of last month, before finding its way to social media sites, shows an elderly woman being kicked by the traffic officers while she lay by the roadside next to her stall near Busia Central Police Station.
The Bukedi South Region Police spokesperson Mr Moses Mugwe has since identified the victim as Ms Jenipher Wambani, 63, and the offenders as Mr John Muyinda and Mr Abner Nabusima, both attached to the traffic department of the Uganda Police Force.
He added that the duo had been put on suspension pending disciplinary trial for their conduct which he described as “irregular and discreditable”.
