KAMPALA, UGANDA: The Assistant Inspector General of Police AIGP Edward Ochom who has been the director of operations in the Uganda police force has handed over office to his deputy SCP John Nuwagira, local publication Nilepost reported on Monday.
Ochom’s handover came after he was unable to secure a new contract from President Museveni, who is also the commander in chief of the armed forces.
According to the NilePost, Ochom handed over his office to SCP John Nuwagira in a silent function held on Monday morning at the police headquarters in Naguru, Kampala.
AIGP Ochom who has served police for 35 years in different capacities was in 2020 appointed director of police operations by the inspector general of police Okoth Martin Ochola.
He now joins other directors who retired after their contracts expired, including AIGP Asan Kasingye, Grace Turyagumanawe, and Dr. Steven Kasiima among others.
Meanwhile, those pending retirements are AIGP Andrew Sorowen in charge of welfare and Joseph Mugisa, the director of fire and rescue services.
