THE inspector general of Police has replaced Andrew Sorowen, the commandant of the Kampala Metropolitan region, with Grace Turyagumanawe, the former deputy director of operations in the Police.

Police sources yesterday said the move was based on health reasons, given the injuries that Sorowen sustained in the chaos that marred Wednesday’s mayoral elections in the city.

Sorowen was injured when he intervened to contain the chaotic situation in the city.

Sources said Sorowen’s injury had been underestimated until Friday, when he became worse and it became clear that the injury could keep him out of active service for some time.

“Given the sensitive and vital nature of Kampala, it could not be left under acting command hence the replacement,” a source said.

The development, which takes immediate effect, will see Turyagumanawe leave his office at the Police headquarters and move to Kampala Central Police Station, an office he has once occupied.
