President Yoweri Museveni has finally renewed AIGP Grace Akullo’s contract after the latter had handed over office on 26th July 2022.
This was revealed yesterday 2nd September 2022 by the police spokesperson, Fred Enanga.
He did not disclose the duration of the contract. But traditionally, the tenure of an AIGP’s first contract spans three years.
Early this year, the police management ordered her to clear her desk as is a procedure for an officer above 45 years of age and at the rank of AIGP. The management also told her to apply for a contract as AIGP.
She retired and applied for a contract, but the President didn’t respond in time. This prompted the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Martins Okoth Ochola to advise her to hand over office as she waits for response from the State House.
According to public service standards, police officers above 45 years, who are promoted to the rank of AIGP, have to retire from the police and work on contract basis.
