The Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura has instituted a Police taskforce aimed at fighting child trafficking and human sacrifice.
Moses Binoga, the assistant commissioner of Police has been appointed to run the task force. The taskforce is charged with coordinating intelligence, monitoring and sensitizing the general public about human trafficking and sacrifice.
