KAMPALA. On July 2, 2017, Commissioner of Police Moses Kafeero Kabugo graduated with a master’s degree in peace and conflict transformation at the National Police College in Musanze, Rwanda.
He was the seventh senior Ugandan officer to graduate from the Rwanda National Police College that was established five years ago.
