The Police shortly announced that indeed Emirian Kayima will take over Kasingye’s role as the mouth piece of the police. The change takes immediate effect.
Red Pepper can confirm that its Kasigye who requested to be REMOVED from the post of Police Spokesman. A close friend of Kasingye told us in confidence that Kasingye had never been comfortable in that role and that he had written to the ‘powers’ to be removed.
