Parliament chases out police officials, summons IGP again over fake drugs



By Jael  Namiganda
officials from police have been chased out from parliament the second day in a row by the health committee due to lack of proper documentation.

the same team was chased out on Wednesday by the same committee after they failed to appear with their leaders thats the police chief IGP Martin okoth Ochola, and Director CID Grace Akullo to respond on the issues of delayed investigation of cases  involving fake and counterfirt drugs circulating in the country.

Though the IGP Okoth didn’t show up  today but instead was represented by AIGP director planning and research  and CID boss Grace Akullo but they didn’t posses any documentation or evidence to back up what their arguments but rather depended on parliament documents thus chasing them for the second time.

This after the committee members  asked them on the update of Heptatis B fake drugs and started giving explainations without documents to back them up.
It’s on that note the chairperson of the committee Michel Bukenya told them to go back and come back with the IGP and proper documentation
Bukenya also exhibited concern since one person has been arrested to date over fake drugs.
