Assistant Inspector General of Police AIGP Asan Kasingye‏ is leaving his office as spokesperson of police to concentrate on his work in the office of the commissar.

Kasingye revealed the development on Tuesday: “I won’t have the leisure to do that [disown stories in media] as I will be taking leave of Spokesman function to concentrate on Commissariat work.”

He has been serving in two roles as the spokesperson and Chief Political Commissar.

Kasingye who has a passion for Human Rights, Community Policing and Crime Prevention, served as the director of Interpol.

He replaced AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi who was shot dead by unknown gunmen in March this year.

Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura also appointed AIGP Fred Yiga to replace Kasingye as the director of Interpol and International Relations.

Kasingye will now concentrate on the police force’s Chief Political Commissar (CPC) work.
