Kenneth Mugabi is a soul musician behind songs like ‘Kibunomu’, ‘Naki’, ‘Nkwegomba’ and ‘Kyenkunkuna’ among others.

Idhwege joined the police, on January 2, 1989, and due to his unselfish dedication, courage and commitment, he grew in career through the ranks from Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police to the rank of Commissioner of Police.

“The fallen officer served with distinction in a variety of high profile positions that included Commandant of Environment Police from 2014 to 2019, Commandant Railway Police in 2011, Police Force Transport officer from 2007 to 2011, Kampala Extra Region as the deputy regional police commander from 2006 to 2007, Deputy Regional Police Commander for South Western region in 2006, District Police Commander Lira District 2004 to 2006, Kumi District Commander 1991 to 1995,” Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said on Friday.

He was reinstated to the Uganda Police Force on October 23, 2001, after five years as an MP.
The IGP has reportedly tasked the Directorate of Welfare to organize Idhwege’s burial arrangements.
