President Museveni has extended contracts of five police directors at the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP).
A few months ago, several police directors including, Asan Kasingye (Chief Political Commissar), Abbas Byakagaba (director of Counter Terrorism), Erasmus Twaruhukwa (director Legal and Human Rights), Andrew Sorowen (director for Welfare), John Ndungutse (police attaché to Uganda’s Embassy in Nairobi), Joseph Mugisa, (director for Fire Prevention and Rescue Services) Edward Ochom, (director for Operations) and Haruna Isabirye, the police attaché to Uganda’s embassy in New York among others applied to have their contracts renewed.
The renewal was pending for approval from the president who is also the appointing authority.
This website has however learnt that the president has finally responded by extending contracts of some of the directors mention above.
“It is confirmed, the contracts for Byakagaba Abbas, Ndungutse John, Brig Ddamulira Christopher, Maj Gen Kamunanwire Jesse and Brig Golooba Godfrey have been extended by H.E the President,” a source familiar with the matter told this website on condition of anonymity without giving much details.
The source was however silent on the fate of other directors including Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Andrew Sorowen, Asan Kasingye, Edward Ochom and Joseph Mugisa among others who also applied for extension of their contracts.
AIGP Kasingye has since handed over office to his deputy after expiry of his contract.
