Top Police Management Reshuffled, SCP Enanga Elevated

Following recent discussions with newly appointed Inspector General of Police Abbas Byakagaba, President Yoweri Museveni has announced a significant reshuffle within Uganda's police force. The reshuffle includes key appointments aimed at enhancing operational efficiency and leadership within the force.

Senior Commissioner of Police (SCP) Fred Enanga, who has served as police spokesperson for nearly seven years, has been appointed as the Deputy Director of Interpol-Uganda. He will work alongside Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Grace Akullo in this pivotal role.

Enanga's position as police spokesperson will now be filled by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Rusoke Kituuma, formerly the Regional Police Commander of Rwizi Policing Region.

ACP Kituuma will be supported by ACP Clare Nabakka, who has been serving as Enanga's deputy during Commissioner of Police (CP) Polly Namaye's absence for training at Bwebajja Command and Staff College.

In other key appointments, CP James Ruhweza assumes the role of Deputy Director of Operations Services under SCP Frank Mwesigwa. Ruhweza, known for his decisive actions during protests led by Dr. Kizza Besigye, brings valuable experience to his new position.

SCP Stephen Tanui, who previously served as Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander, has been appointed as the Deputy Director of Fire and Rescue Services. He will support AIGP Fadhir Kamali, who recently replaced AIGP Joseph Mugisa.

Additionally, CP Sarah Kibwika, former Commandant of the Professional Standards Unit (PSU), transitions to Commissioner in charge of Human Resources Management (HRM). Her role at PSU will now be filled by SCP Christine Nanding, who has been serving in the Deputy Director role at the Legal Directorate.
