The Commissioner General of Uganda Prison Services Dr Johnson Byabashaija has with immediate effect suspended Mr. Norman Aruho, SP, the Officer in Charge (OC) of the famous Moroto Government Prison.

“Mr. Jimmy Anguzu, SP, Officer in Charge, U.G. Prison Farm Isimba is transferred to U.G. Prison Soroti as Officer in Charge.  He takes over from Mr. Latif Mayamba, SP, who is transferred to U.G. Prison Moroto as Officer in Charge.  Mr. Mayamba takes over from Mr. Norman Aruho, SP, who is suspended from duty with immediate effect,” Dr. Byabashaija said.

Moroto Government Prison has been in the news since last month when over 200 inmates broke the facility and escaped with fourteen guns.

Prison Authorities recently put a bounty of Shs1.5 million  for every gun recovered and Shs500,000 for leads to each of the escapees but it’s however not clear how many have been caught alive, put out of action or even if there’s any gun recovered.

Dr. Byabashaija also made other changes in which a number of officers were either transfer, appointed or sent on leave.

Mr. Moses Sentalo, ACP, Officer in Charge, U.G. Prison Upper was appointed Service Assistant Public Relations Officer.  He was however directed to remain Officer in Charge of the upper prison too.
