Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Jonathan Baroza, the former Personal Assistant to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), General Kale Kayihura has reportedly left the country for an unknown destination.
According to sources at Entebbe International Airport, Baroza’s exit was coordinated by a one Caleb Kabindi.
ACP Baroza, who was reportedly escorted to the airport, was ushered in the VIP section where he waited until other passengers had boarded the plane, the source further said. EagleOnline couldn’t expose the name of the airline for business and confidentiality purposes.
However, this website also couldn’t easily established whether ACP Baroza is a holder of a diplomatic passport, as this a reserve of very senior officials like Ministers, Permanent Secretaries and Ambassadors.
ACP Baroza was recently relieved off his duties as the Personal Assistant to Gen. Kayihura and according to police sources, he was supposed to go for training in Algeria.
And, contacted for comment, Police Spokesperson AIGP Asan Kasingye said he was yet to establish the facts.
“Anyway, why would you want to know where our officers are travelling to,” he jokingly asked.
Meanwhile, following the killing of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Andrew Felix Kaweesi on March 17, there were reports that ACP Baroza sent a junior police officer to the scene of crime in Kulambiro, to allegedly pick soil samples from the point where Kaweesi was shot.
At the time it is said that AIGP Fred Yiga, a very senior police officer who was at the scene queried the junior police officer, who in turn said he had been sent by Baroza, who however, was not one of the forensic investigators.
