Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola on Tuesday shook up the Information and Communication Technology directorate of police.
According to a statement released by police spokesman Emilian Kayima, Ochola has filled the position of the director of ICT which has been vacant since the former director Amos Ngabirano fled the force.
Ochola appointed Commissioner of Police (CP) Felix Baryamwisaki as acting director to steer the directorate at the police headquarters.
CP Yusuf Ssewanyana, according to Kayima’s statement, was appointed to deputise Baryamwisaki.
Assistant CP Ezra Mujabwami was elevated to commissioner and assigned to head Maintenance in the ICT department of police.
Kayima also wrote that Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Ahmed Wakwale was transferred from Kampala Metropolitan Police and appointed to be in charge of Communication at the police headquarters in Naguru.
ASP Abdallah Nabongo has been posted to KMP to head the ICT department.
Police Director in charge of ICT, Amos Ngabirano resigned and left Uganda early this year when information started making rounds that he had mishandled funds meant to procure surveillance systems of the force.
Since then, the directorate has been running without a director to steer its operations and monitoring.
