Uganda Police Forces Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura has appointed Emillian Kayima as their new spokesperson.
Kayima will take over from AIGP Asan Kasingye who has been serving in the same position since the death of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi in March 2017.
Officials said this change of positions will be communicated officially later today Tuesday.
When Kayima was contacted, he said was yet to be briefed on the matter.
“Kasingye has been spending the better part of his time speaking to the media which leaves him with little time to carry out his duties as a political commissar,” said an official briefed about this development.
“The new changes will allow him plan and participate in activities that will boost the image of the police whereas Kayima will be speaking to the media and preparing police communications.”
