- Expiring. This is not the first time the officers’ contracts have expired. Their contracts first expired between November 2017 and February 2018.
Contracts of 12 Assistant Inspectors General of Police (AIGP) serving as directors in the Uganda Police have expired but they have continued serving in office without official renewal, Daily Monitor has established.
One of the affected officers, who did not want to be named, said they had raised the issue in their Police Accounts Committee meetings with the Inspector General of Police(IGP), Mr Martins Okoth-Ochola, during the last police council meeting but received no reply.
“We all expressed our intention in writing to the Police Authority to have our contracts renewed but we don’t know what is happening. We will just continue doing our work,” one of the directors said yesterday.
Other affected directors, who are at the rank of AIGP, are Mr Asan Kasingye (Chief Political Commissar), Mr Lemmy Twinomujuni (Welfare and Production), Mr Joseph Mugisa (Fire and Rescue Services), and Mr Edward Ochom (Research and Planning).

This is not the first time the officers’ contracts have expired. Their contracts first expired between November 2017 and February 2018 and they applied for an extension. The senior officers were granted a one-year extension which expired at the end of 2019.
