The Kigezi sub-region of Uganda has successfully concluded its leg of the nationwide recruitment drive for Probationer Police Constables (PPCs). A total of 245 shortlisted applicants participated in the interviews held across all six districts within the region: Kabale, Kisoro, Kanungu, Rukungiri, Rubanda, and Rukiga.

The nationwide interview process commenced on May 6, 2024, and the Kigezi region completed its portion on May 12th in Rukungiri District, according to ASP Elly Maate, the Kigezi region Police spokesperson. Maate confirmed a smooth and successful exercise overseen by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Emilian Kayima and Kigezi regional police commander ACP Saiga Ibrahim.

"The recruitment of probationer police constables has ended within Kigezi with the district of Rukungiri on the 12th of this May," Maate stated. "We went across the region, and the number of candidates that were shortlisted attended the interviews. The whole exercise has been successful. Of course, we don't know who has done well with us; we were just interviewing them and sending the results to the center. It's the center that will finalize the list of those who will have gone through."

Maate emphasized the efficiency of the process, highlighting the absence of any significant challenges. All candidates completed a rigorous four-stage testing procedure designed to assess their suitability for the role. This included written and oral interviews to gauge their understanding, communication skills, and problem-solving abilities. Medical checkups ensured good health, while general body examinations assessed physical stature and fitness for police work. Finally, a 5 km run tested their physical endurance, a crucial aspect of police service.

With the regional interviews complete, all eyes are now on the central selection committee. "We are eagerly awaiting the final shortlist of successful candidates," Maate expressed.

For the shortlisted applicants, the waiting period continues. Maate advised them to remain informed: "I want to call on the parents of those candidates to have their ears on the ground because any time the list will be out, they will also be informing them to report for training in Masindi."

This news brings a sense of accomplishment for the Kigezi region, having successfully conducted their portion of the nationwide recruitment drive. The aspiring police constables now await the final verdict, hoping to be among those chosen to embark on their journey in law enforcement. The training in Masindi awaits those who make the cut, where they will be rigorously prepared for the demands and responsibilities of serving as guardians of peace and security in Uganda.
