posted onFebruary 9, 2022

The Inspector General of Police Okoth Ochola has welcomed the appointment of Maj Gen Abel Kanidho as the new Police Chief of Joint Staff.

“The IGP looks forward to working with Major General Kandiho, in overseeing, guiding and delivering strong leadership that supports the vision, mission and values of the force,” Ochola in a message through the Police spokesperson on Tuesday evening.

President Museveni on Tuesday recalled Gen Kandiho who he had sent to monitor on behalf of the guarantors, the assembling, screening, demobilization and integration of the armed forces of South Sudan, assigning the former CMI Chief a police role.

In the changes announced Tuesday, the President also moved Brig C.K Asiimwe from CMI and sent him for further training.
