Kaweesi Appointed New Police Spokesperson
Uganda’s Inspector General of Police (IGP) has appointed, AIGP Felix Kaweesi, the new Public Relations Officer of Police, Red Pepper Online has learnt.
Kaweesi who has been Kampala Metropolitan zonal commander replaces Fred Enanga as the force’s mouthpiece. His appointment comes on the heels of speculation that Enanga had been redeployed. It is not yet clear where Enanga has been posted.
Early this year, Kaweesi returned to police operations in Kampala, a year after being transferred to the newly-created directorate of human resource development.
Kaweesi becomes highest ranked officer appointed to a post that has been headed by police commissioners.
There has been speculation that Enanga had asked for a sick leave but our sources in police intimated to us that Enanga has been given another post in the force.
