Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura has called upon police officers to embrace team work in their day to day duties.

While closing a two day Police Council Meeting at Marine base, in Kigo Kajjansi, Kayihura noted that many resolutions had been agreed on and it was time to get things done.

“Let’s hit the ground running effective 1st March 2018 by implementing our 13 strategic plans. I expect that we move as a winning team based on what we have agreed on the two days spent here,” Kayihura said.

“We should compliment each other to deliver , we must be coordinated, there’s nobody here who works alone, so we have to redeem the image of the force and ultimately your image at individual professional level and take discipline and integrity as a key”.

Kayihura also tasked the Directorate of Research Planning and Management to implement plans and evaluate resolutions made.

At the opening of the meeting earlier in the week, Minister for Internal Affairs Gen. Jeje Odongo urged the Officers to discus pertinent issues affecting policing.

“I would like to encourage you when you leave this meeting that the matters you have discussed are not for public consumption but for you to go back and implement , they should affect your performance here after,” he said.

The minister also launched the Police Strategic and Annual Policing Plan 2015- -2016, 2019 -2020 and the 2017 annual work plan .

The meeting was attended by Directors, heads of units, District Police Commanders and Region Police Commanders.


  1. I don’t know why kale sounds like a broken record. Just the other day, he was giving ultimatums warning any officer who dared to share information without his permission. Today, he’s talking teamwork which means sharing. Which message is he sending? Kaihura might not have to resign but he surely needs a holiday from police work. What am I also saying? Blame it on me.

  2. Kale kayihura is no longer required to head a Uganda police force. He has done his part and its over for him because he can’t add anything good for the interest of this country but for him and his boss museveni all serving their selfish interests .
