Uganda Police Force has rebranded to Uganda National Police.

The Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura said on Friday the Constitution will be amended to reflect Police's change of name.


Kayihura told a meeting at Hotel Africana in Kampala that he rejected a suggestion of change to Uganda Police Service because “cops are not waitresses.”

The Police chief explained that, “Ugandans hate the word Force. Rebranding is meant to address those fears.”
