DCG Namuhoranye was appointed as the Inspector General of Police on Monday 20th February 2023 replacing Dan Munyuza who had held the position since 2018.
At the time, CP Vincent Sano was named the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of operations.
As he officiated the swearing-in ceremony at Urugwiro Village, Kagame requested new leaders to model excellence and put citizens before, if they are to discharge their duties diligently.
He assured that the government will provide necessary support for the institution to deliver to its mandate.
“All our leaders should also understand their duties. They should understand the responsibilities we have related to security, justice, development, all of which are important,” he said.
“There is no shortcut whatsoever to look for. That happens only when people think about themselves more than they about their duties,” added Kagame.
The new Police Chief was appointed DCGP in charge of operations in 2018. He had previously served as the Commandant of National Police College.
