“H.E President Kaguta Museveni has appointed Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Tumusiime Kasigazi as Deputy Inspector General of Police, ” Faruk Kirunda, the Deputy Presidential Press Secretary said on Tuesday evening.

Prior to his appointment as Deputy police chief, Maj Gen Katsigazi  has been serving as the Deputy Commander of the UPDF Air Force ,  a position he assumed in January 2020  taking over from Maj Gen Gavas Mugyenyi.

Maj Gen Katsigazi replaces Lt Gen Paul Lokech who died of a blood clot in August last year having been in the position for only eight months.

By being appointed as the new Deputy Inspector General of Police, Katsigazi will now relieve Maj Gen Jack Bakasumba who was in November appointed to be in charge of the office in an acting capacity in a bid to avoid having a vacuum.

By appointing Maj Gen Katsigazi, President Museveni has once again ensured the position is taken by a serving officer in the UPDF to take charge of affairs of the Police Force as Deputy IGP.
