Kampala, (UG):- Uganda’s Inspector General of Police, IGP Abbas Byakagaba has appointed Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kituuma Rusoke as the new force’s new spokesperson replacing Senior Commissioner of Police, SCP Fred Enanga, police sources have confirmed.

SCP Enanga has now been appointed Deputy Director in charge of Interpol and International Relations, with the changes taking immediate effect.

Mr Enanga effected the changes Sunday evening by updating his profile bio on X (formerly Twitter), but police were yet to release an official statement on the same changes.

It is not yet clear whether more reshuffles have been made, but the reshuffles, as confirmed by police sources, bring an end to the reign of five years for Mr Enanga who assumed office in 2020, when he replaced Emilian Kayima in the then reign of former IGP Okoth Ochola.

The changes come just days after IGP Byakagaba met with the President earlier this week and discussed strategies of strengthening the police’s relations going forward.

Having served in various police departments including lands, Enanga was first appointed as police spokesperson in 2014 to replace Judith Nabakooba by Gen Kale Kayihura.

He would later be dropped and Emilian Kayima was appointed the new spokesperson. However, in 2019, John Martins Okoth Ochola reappointed Enanga as police spokesperson and has since then never looked back.

Enanga is credited for defending the police even during hard times. Despite the nature of his job that on many occasions pits him against the public as he defends police, he has been a darling to many, including opposition politicians
