The Inspector General of Police has with immediate effect transferred and appointed four (4) Senior Police Officers in a mini-reshuffle.
These include; Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kaali Fadhil who was appointed as Commander of the Special Field Force Regiment (SFFR), and is to be deputized by Superintendent of Police (SP) Ojandu AD Robert, the Ag. Deputy Commander SFFR.
While Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Sam Omala has been transferred to Greater Busoga as the Deputy Commander Bukedea Sector, and replaced by Superintendent of Police (SP) Agero Rashid, the new Field Force Unit Operations Commander-Kampala Metropolitan Police.
CP Fred Enanga, Press and Public Relations Officer Uganda Police, says the transfers that are normal and regular, take immediate effect, and are also based on service exigencies and competence.
“We congratulate the appointed officers and wish them success in their new postings.”
In 2013, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) former President, Kizza Besigye, was placed under house arrest.
This is the same time Omala hit the limelight.
Omala, a senior superintendent of police, was the operations commander for Kampala North, stationed at the Kawempe Police Station.
He laid siege of Besigye’s Kasangati home on October 4, 2013 at the peak of the famous walk-towork riots.
No Ugandan has since forgotten Omala’s face.
