President Museveni has extended contracts for five police directors at the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP).
A few months ago, several police directors including, Asan Kasingye, the Chief Political Commissar, Abbas Byakagaba, the director of Counter Terrorism, Erasmus Twaruhukwa, the director Legal and Human Rights, Andrew Sorowen, the director for Welfare, John Ndungutse, the police attaché to Uganda’s Embassy in Nairobi, Joseph Mugisa, the director for Fire Prevention and Rescue Services, Edward Ochom, the 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 a green light 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.
“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 the Nilepost on condition of anonymity without giving much details.
The source was however silent on the fate of other directors including AIGP Sorowen, Kasingye, Ochom and 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.
