Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | President and Commander in Chief Yoweri Museveni has appointed four new Assistant Inspector Generals of Police, from Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF).

Seconded to join Police are Brig. Jack Bakasumba, Brig Godfrey Goloba, and Colonels Jese Kamunanwire and Chris Damulira.

Brig. Jack Bakasumba has been named Chief of Joint Staff for the Police, while Col Ddamulira who has been the deputy CMI director for counter terrorism is now director of crime intelligence in the Uganda Police.

They join Major General Sabiiti Muzeyi, who is the Deputy Inspector General.

  1. Byaruhanga geofrey

    Thanks Mr president, but high criminality in the city,,

    U shd improve security in the city surbab

  2. Does police still work or it does not have enough personnel
    just asking

  3. This is a welcome move. My prayer is that more professionalization will prevail.

  4. But Ugandans must be reminded by what Muzee Byanyima echoed in his last interview with one of Observer’s journalist, Benon Olula (The Love and Hate Relationship between Museveni and the Byanyimas, 22nd May 2017).

    Muzee Byanyima said that whatever Museveni does, has nothing to do with national interest, but himself and family. He went on to say that unlike what Mr. Museveni wants Ugandans and the world to believe, that the UPDF is a disciplined army; UPDF is not a disciplined army but a politicized one. Otherwise all the massacres in Northern Uganda (and also Kasese) would not have taken place.

  5. I hope this is a good move

    • Thanks the President in fact infact you have even delaid to do,I request the President to do like this all private security recruitment agencies to be changed to the government and let the goverment own guns to recruite the privatesecurity people as police officers and updf soldiers as well as ldu then ,,let updf to be the control riot’s, conflict why becouse when police get involved in those activities u get the country shouting, let army train them the way of behaving mostly red topies and let the governments policy upgrade the salaries and welfare of security personals so that any person who whats private security will hire direct from directorate of police and army, I would like the President to help the country upon jobs let government recognized internal recruitment agencies by getting them good contract that can help our agencies to pay our fellow Ugandan well so that our people will admire to work in our country, FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY

      • Thanks the president of Uganda and commander in chief of armed forces. Its my pray that you stay forever. Thanks for the peace and security in Uganda. You know without security no Government.
