Eight senior Police Officers apply for Job Extension
By Melanie Aanyu,
Eight police officers at the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP), who applied for renewal of their contracts six months ago, are uncertain about their future in the Force, pending President Museveni’s decision.
On Monday, Assistant Inspector General of Police Asan Kasingye, who was the Chief Political Commissar, handed over office to his deputy after his application for extension of his contract went unanswered.
Seven other directors have applied for extension of their contracts.
These include; Andrew Sorowen, the director of welfare, John Ndungutse, the police attaché to Uganda Embassy in Nairobi and Joseph Mugisa, the director of Fire among others.
Inspector General of Police Martins Okoth-Ochola wrote to Mr Kasingye to hand over office as they wait if the President would extend his contract.
Many of the directors got their contracts in 2020 while some have had three-year contracts since 2009.
