Two senior police officers who were side-stepped in the recent appointment of police spokesperson Emilian Kayima have finally handed over their offices as they await new deployment.
The two officers include Commissioner of Police (CP) Fred Enanga who has been working as part of the administration team Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Polly Namaye.
Before the appointment of the late AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi as police spokesperson in 2016, Enanga was holding that portfolio with Namaye as his deputy. The duo, however, remained in the public relations office during Kaweesi’s tenure and that of AIGP Asan Kasingye who took over after the former was shot dead in March this year.
Last week, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Emilian Kayima was appointed to replace Kasingye as police publicist but the deployment remained silent on the fate of the two officers, both senior in rank to Kayima. URN now understands that they have handed over their offices before they were deployed else where and are now at home awaiting transfer.
A reliable source who preferred anonymity told Uganda Radio Network that the two officers had approached Kasingye and expressed their inability to continue working in the department. Kasingye then wrote a letter to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kale Kayihura requesting that the two officers be transferred to the office of Chief Political Commissar where he is Director.
