The Internal Security Organisation has suspended at least 45 spies based at all border points under unclear circumstances.
They were withdrawn two weeks ago and replaced by the operatives working in the districts where the border points are located. Sources say they were reportedly moved for “not doing their work.”
The ISO boss, Col Kaka Bagyenda, yesterday said the operatives had been transferred, not sacked.
“These are normal transfers. Nothing more, nothing less,” he said.
There are more than 30 border points which Uganda shares with the neighbouring countries.
There are eight border points on the DR Congo side, 10 on the Ugandan border, five on the Rwandan side, six with South Sudan and four points shared with Tanzania.
Meanwhile, three directors, two regional internal security officers and two district internal security officers have also been suspended under unclear circumstances.
The director of Technical services, Mr Charles Oluka, the director of Economic Monitoring, Mr Charles Ndawula, and Mr Joseph Aliganyira, the director of Political Affairs, have also been suspended.
