Many of the suspects detained at the facility including the Kaweesi Murder suspects, Kamwege Mayor Godfrey Byamukama among others have come out openly revealed that acts of human rights violation are carried out at the facility including torture, detention without trial among others. While responding to media reports about the closure of Nalufenya,Deputy police spokesman Patrick Onyango denied the information saying the facility is still open. "it's true that during the Police Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting chaired by Ochola on Wednesday.
The committee discussed about the closure of Nalufenya but there was no conclusion so nothing has changed yet in its capacity to admit suspected criminals"He said Police committee members wanted suspects can be detained in the other various Police stations in the country. Some senior police officers are however said to have been against the closure, arguing that Nalufenya had good interrogation facilities and accommodation for suspects but Ochola and others maintained the decision giving Naggalama Police Station as an equally good facility for interrogation.
