The Police fraternity has woken up to the sudden death of one of their longest servicing Police Officer Commissioner, and the Director Uganda Police Band Josephine Kakooza, who breathed her last at Namirembe hospital today morning.

Kakooza joined the Police force in 1969 as a fourteen year old girl.

She has been the head of music, dance and drama department in the force. Her team has performed before eight different Ugandan Presidents.

Kakooza was born in Masaka to Joseph Kakooza, a former Buganda County chief, and Theodora Namutebi.

Her band career journeyed after training at Kibuli Police Training School for two years, and was deployed in the Police band under the Police music department.

May her soul rest in eternal peace and may God strengthen her family and the entire Uganda Police fraternity.
