The expiry of the Inspector General of PoliceMartin Ochola’s contract has sparked debate at Naguru police headquarters on who is likely to replace him.
Ochola is serving his second term of three years ever since he replaced Gen Edward Kale Kayihura on March 4, 2018.
However, Ochola has reportedly not written to the Police Authority chaired by the Minister for Internal Affairs seeking renewal of his contract, yet it is supposed to be done within six months of the expiry of the reigning contract.
Sources say Ochola has informed some of the career top senior police officers that he will not be seeking renewal of his contract. When contacted about reports that Ochola has informed top police officers about his retirement next month, Senior Commissioner of Police –SCP Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson said: “His contract ends on 4, 03, 2024. That’s all.” END
