IGP Ochola Gives More Powers to 15 Directors Previously Bundled Under Kayihura’s Office
Ochola Returns Powers to 15 Directors
The changes also saw Kayihura directorates slashed and collapsed under others.
Overall, Ochola’s restructuring expose the conflict he could have had with his sacked former boss.
KAYIHURA-OCHOLA DISAGREEMENT ON ROLE OF IGP
Apparently, Ochola and Kayihura disagreed on the role of an Inspector General of Police (IGP).
In June 2017, for example, local media quoted Ochola as saying that the IGP should “wait for reports from commanders and provide consultancy where they need help”.
Indeed, the Ochola merged two police directorates.
He also gave powers to heads of 15 units.
These were at Kayihura’s heart because they directly reported to him.
The directors are now compiling reports on their units for Ochola to assess before he can allow them to take key decisions.
