Okoth Martins Ochola, the Inspector General of Police has named a new commander for the Flying Squad a month after redeploying Herbert Muhangi and disolving his entire team.

A month ago a radio message was sent ordering all flying squad team members to report to CID Kibuli. Most of them reported and were debriefed and asked to apply and told to await further communication.

Until today, Kakonge has been a detective stationed at CID Headquarters in Kibuli.
