Kawonawo recalled as Kasigire is named Entebbe DPC

Following the recent woes which led to his detention, Baker Kawonawo the Entebbe Division Police Commander (DPC) has been replaced with Micheal Kasigire in the new changes that were made by the Inspector General of Police, and had to be effected immediately.

SP Kawonawo was replaced with Kasigire who until of recent, was the DPC for Kira road Police station. This was confirmed by the Police spokesperson Fred Enanga. “There was a placement gap because the commander who was in Entebbe, is undergoing an administrative action,” noted Enanga. The police spokesperson explained that this was a normal transfer where the placement committee looked at a number of parameters and found Kasigire with experience, among other requirements needed in Entebbe area. “Of course, he had also spent a while in Kira and therefore, it was important for him (Kasigire) to change environment,” further intimated Enanga.

On March 23, Kawonawo was held by his superiors in Kampala on allegations of violating presidential directives about containing Coronavirus when he reportedly failed to close flea markets. He was released on March 25 but had not resumed office until his replacement on Monday.
