Masindi Police School boss Kafeero transferred

The Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura, has transferred the commandant of Masindi Police Training Kabalye, Commissioner Moses Kafeero, and replaced him with Counter terrorism commandant.

In a police message sent Wednesday morning, Commissioner Kafeero has been transferred to Bwebajja Police Staff College and he has been replaced by Senior Superintendent of Police Frank Mwesigwa, who has been the commandant Tactical Unit in Counter Terrorism Directorate.

Police spokesman, Mr Fred Enanga, wasn’t available for comment but Mr Kafeero confirmed that he has been transferred.

“It is true. I am glad that I have accomplished this work,” Mr Kafeero said.
His work was to establish a police staff college which has been lacking in Uganda. Police bought buildings that were formerly owned by the owner of Kisubi High School after failing to acquire buildings in Jinja near the Nalubaale dam.

Commissioner Kafeero has been the commandant of the Masindi Police Training School Kabalye since 2011 when he replaced Mr Andrew Felix Kaweesi whom he was deputizing.

SSP Mwesigwa joined police in 2010 as a police cadet. He was sent to United States for counter terrorism training for a year.
