Uganda Olympians promoted in Police Force


Four Police officers who represented Uganda in the Olympics have been promoted by the Inspector General.

Gold medallist Chemutai Peruth has been promoted from a constable to an inspector.

Olympian Chelangat Mercyline has moved from an Assistant Inspector rank to that of an inspector.

Chemutai Immaculate was promoted from Corporal to Sergeant while Shida Renny was promoted from constable to Corporal.

The promotion of gold medallist Cheptegei Joshua and his coach Njia Benjamin from Inspector to Assistant Superintendent was being followed up.

The Inspector General said the athletes were “being rewarded for the great success, pride and jubilation they brought to the institution and the country.”
