General kayihura and others are to retire next month from the Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF).

President Yoweri Museveni, who doubles as the commander in chief of the armed forces, has approved General kayihura’s retirement and others of the Uganda People’s Defense Force (UPDF) soldiers.The ceremony was  slated in August 31, 2023.

The former Police chief was charged in 2018 with failure to protect war materials, failure to supervise police officers, and abetting kidnapping. He has been out on bail since 2020.

According to a UPDF statement signed by Defense spokesperson Brig Gen Felix Kulayigye, of the 110 officers to retire, 11 are generals and 99 are senior officers. Batch 13A of those to retire includes former IGP Kale Kayihura, according to the UPDF.

Here at Uncovered News, we tried all possible ways to ensure that we took General Kayihura to task, and he told us that “it’s an honor to work in the Ugandan army, especially the police at large. Let’s work together with the president in power to ensure that stability and peace are promoted in the country”.

Additionally, Kayihura was sacked in 2018 from the position of IGP, which he had held for over 12 years, and was replaced by his then-deputy, Martin Okoth Ochola.

Other retiring officers include Major Generals Joseph Arocha, Stephen Oluka, and Ham Atwoki Kaija, among others.
