Former Nalufenya’s Tyson Rutambika transfered to Namisindwa


IGP Martin Okoth Ochola has made transfers within the police force that have seen the commandant of the now Nalufenya police station transferred.

It should be remembered last month police closed Nalufenya detention centre in Jinja District and designated it as police station.

In the transfers, Assistant Superintendent of Police Tyson Rutambika who has been serving as the Officer in Charge of Nalufenya has been transferred to Namisindwa as the officer in charge of Lwkakhakha police station in Namisindwa district, Bugisu sub region.

Rutambika has been replaced by ASP Kassim from Lwengo as the OC station for the now Nalufenya police station.

A number of people have been detained at Nalufenya in the past including Omusinga Charles Wesley Mumbere, ADF leader Jamilu Mukulu and Kaweesi murder suspects among other people.

All most all people detained at Nalufenya claimed they had been tortured by police while at the facility and most of them had visible wounds whereas other were limping, all occasioned by the torture.

Police has on a number of occasions been criticised over the detention centre which many branded a torture chamber.

International bodies including the Human Rights Watch have in the past accused police of torture using Nalufenya detention centre.
