Asan Kasingye has been dropped as police spokesperson by the Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura in the latest reshuffle announced today morning.
Kasingye has been replaced by SSP Emilian Kayima who was the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson.
Kasingye was appointed police spokesperson in March this year after, the then police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi got gunned down near his home in Kulambiro.
One of the shortest serving police spokespersons, Kasingye, often contradicted himself and his superiors on a number of issues.
Just this week, Kasingye contradicted his earlier statement that had rubbished a New Vision story that reported that US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had joined investigations into the serial murders of women in Wakiso district.
He has also had to deal with the negative publicity and what looks like a turf war between security agencies within police, army and intelligence.
In his communication, Kayihura said he was delinking, the office of police spokesperson from the political commissariat because the biggest challenge facing police now is dominant negative attitude and values which can only be sustainable cured through political education.
Kasingye said is now going to "concentrate on commissariat work."
