A strange illness has reportedly placed the Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola down to his sick bed. The same confession has been made this afternoon by the police health expert, Dr. Moses Byaryhanga who was interfacing with the security and defence committee of the eleventh parliament.
According to Dr. Byaruhanga, Ochola is grappling with high blood pressure which weakened him for the past months. It should be recalled that even during the send off of the fallen Deputy IGP, Maj. Gen. Paul Lokech, Ochola was a no show, something that raised eyebrows within the public.
Relatives to the IGP Ochola who prayed to remain anonymous say he is seriously ill and cannot even move out of his Naguru based home.
“Uncle cannot stand on his own. He needs helpers to hold him to stand. He spends most of his time on his sick bed,” says the family source. “We are all very worried. We don’t know if he will recover again,” adds the source.
IGP Ochola was appointed in June 2018 following the eventual sacking of bush war historical, Gen. Edward Kale Kayihura who had spent over 13 years on the same position.
