Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Emilian Kayima, who has been the Uganda Police mouthpiece, has been axed and replaced with Commissioner of Police Fred Enanga, who was formerly serving in the same position.

Fred Enanga

Kayima was replaced in a new police shakeup on Saturday January 12th, 2019 by Inspector General of Police, Martin Okoth Ochola.

Sources at Naguru police headquarters revealed to this website  that CP Enanga will be deputised by Assistant Commissioner Polly Namaye.

Kayima has since been appointed  In-charge of publications while SP Patrick Onyango has bounced back as Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson.

Enanga and Namaye were police spokespersons but were dropped by former IGP Gen Kale Kayihura in 2016 and replaced by AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi, who was killed in March 2017. They were taken for further training. However, insiders reveal that Kayima was axed because of his weaknesses when it came to defending and upholding the image of the police especially in the past year, during which several opposition politicians, mainly MP Bobi Wine, caused mayhem in the city.

It is also said that in most cases he was too slow or too fast to make statements that often cast the Force in bad light. However, we shall keep you posted about this developing story.
