Golden star Joshua Cheptegei has been promoted

The inspector general of police, Martins Okoth Ochola, has promoted policeman and record breaker athlete Joshua Cheptegei to the rank of assistant superintendent of police (ASP).

Police spokesman Fred Enanga, announced the promotion today Monday. Cheptegei has been promoted in honour of his recent achievements at the international stage. The 24-year old athlete this year alone broke the 5,000m and 10,000m world records.

Two years ago Cheptegei was promoted from the rank of police constable to inspector of police. Enanga also announced that the IGP Ochola has given a double cabin truck and coaster bus to the police athletics team to ease their transport challenges.

Last week Cheptegei finished 4th in the World Half Marathon Championship in Poland. The race was won by another Ugandan, prisons officer Jacob Kiplimo.

It is a good example to the rest of the police fraternity to do policing differently than what it is well known to do everyday of the year since the independence of Uganda since October 1962!

The inspector general of police should have promoted Joshua Cheptegei to the rank of superintendent of police (SSP) instead of Asisstant, he is far better than the likes of Onyango and Enanga who are always speaking nonsense on behalf of the institution of the Uganda Police.

Why do they wait for the guy to get so many medals before they can promote him

Imagine none of them is wearing a mask yet they are the ones always preaching social distancing and wearing of masks.
