Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP), Asan Kasingye handed over office after his contract with the Uganda Police expired.

In March 2020, President Museveni who is also the commander in chief of the armed forces renewed contracts for five police directors including AIGP Kasingye.

In the letter, Museveni also renewed the contracts for Andrew Sorowen (Special Duties), Joseph Mugisa (Fire and Rescue Services), John Ndungutse (Attache at Uganda Embassy in Kenya) and Erasmus Twaruhukwa (Human Rights and Legal Services).

Contrary to online reports that I “quit”, “resigned, the fact is, my contract expired & had to handover. It may be renewed or not. I am proud to bow out head high. Problem is, I woke up this morning, put on my uniform. At the dining table, my wife reminded me that it was over
