Claim that AIGP Maj. Gen. Jackson Bakasumba has been appointed Deputy Inspector General of Police
The Uganda Police Force has dismissed a claim that AIGP Maj. Gen. Jackson Bakasumba has been appointed Deputy Inspector General of police.
The claim about Gen. Bakasumba’s appointment was published on different social media platforms by different social media(especially twitter where the claim mostly circulated) users and credible media personnel like Daniel Lutaaya, a news reporter with NBS television.
It should be remembered that that Uganda lost its Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP),Maj. Gen. Paul Lokech to a blood clot on 21st August earlier this year as reported by police.
However, the Uganda Police Force(UPDF)through their official twitter account has called upon the public to treat the information about the appointment of the Chief of staff , AIGP Jackson Bakasumba with all the contempt it deserves.
“We shall effectively inform the public through our proven communication channels , once the position of DIGP is filled, by the appointing Authority.”
The UPDF also called upon all media platforms to pull down their fake stories.
