Major General Jack Bakasumba has been appointed as the Deputy Inspector General of the Uganda Police.
Yesterday’s 12th evening, the Internal Affairs Minister Kahinda Otafire appointed Bakasumba by to serve as the acting Deputy Inspector General of Police until President Museveni appoints another person to the office.
Major General Jack Bakasumba replaces the late Major General Paul Lokech also known as the “Lion of Mogadishu”. Who tragically met his untimely death in August.
Since Major General Lokech’s demise, the office of Deputy Inspector General of Police was vacant hence appointing Mr. Bakasumba last night to usher into office.
