76 Senior Police Officers Graduate in Command, Human Rights 

Published

on


A total of 76 Senior Police Officers have today graduated from Police Senior Command and Staff College, Bwebajja, after completing a one year course in command and human rights.

The graduates were cohorts of September 15, 2017 intake and April 6, 2019. The graduates were drawn from various Police units.

The Inspector-General of Police, John Martins Okoth Ochola, presided over the graduation digitally while his deputy Maj Gen Muzeyi Sabiiti physically attended.

Mr. Okoth Ochola congratulated the officers for completing the course and for being disciplined while at the college.

He said that Police as an institution is committed to protecting life and property as per the mandate.

Maj.Gen. Sabiiti appreciated the President of Uganda, Gen. Yoweri Museveni for the great support he rendered to Police as an institution. He said that Police have got better technology to fight crime like CCTV cameras and crime data management systems.

He said that with CCTV, Police can now have a bird’s eye view in terms of policing an area.

Ohola also urged the officers to adapt to the changing environment in Policing which is challenging.

SSP Caroline Akoth who spoke on behalf of other graduates said the course has helped them acquire new skills in planning, briefing personnel before deployment, agenda-setting, and prioritizing national security components.

“It has enhanced us with critical analysis of situations, enhanced teamwork. We are now very strong and ready to take on tasks,” SSP Akoth said.

Bwebajja College Commandant, Dr. John Kamya, said the 2017 cohort had 39 senior police officers but one was dismissed after his papers were found unfit for a Master’s course. The 2019 intake had 38 senior police officers and have all acquired skills in crime analysis, intelligence and human rights observance.

Dr. Kamya said that the graduates include Assistant Superintendent of Police – ASP, Superintendent of Police – SP and Senior Superintendent of Police – SSP.

“You are leaving this place with certificates in development, command and research competencies. They must be attributes of police commanders. You’ve also acquired knowledge in crime management, intelligence and service writing,” Dr. Kamya said.

Dr. Kamya added that the skills the officers have attained must also enable them to comprehensively investigate sexual offences.

Director of Police Human Resource Development, AIGP Godfrey Golooba, urged graduates to exhibit the skills they have acquired to steer the police institutions.

Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Published

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.
