President Yoweri Museveni has advised security organs to work as a team if they are to succeeded in executing their assigned duties.
“In the security docket the main issue has been teamwork. When you work as a team you benefit from the knowledge of others. People should contribute their ideas and ensure success thereafter,” said Mr Museveni.

Kayihura was replaced by Okoth Martin Ochola while Brig Sabiiti Muzeyi was appointed as the Deputy IGP.
“People should not be shy to help each other in terms of management. Security heads should not seat and remain silent while wrongs are being committed,” Mr Museveni added.
