Uganda Police Force (UPF) spokesperson Fred Enanga is one of the 81 Ugandans that President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni will award medals during this year’s Heroes Day celebration.

On Thursday, June 09, 2022, Uganda will commemorate Heroes Day, an annual event that celebrates citizens “who have made exceptionally outstanding contributions locally and globally,” according to an official government statement.

To be held under the theme: ‘An opportunity to consolidate our efforts in securing Uganda,’ the 2022 Heroes’ Day Anniversary celebrations will take place at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds, with President Museveni as the chief guest.

In line with the National Honours and Awards Act, 2001, the Office of the President and the the Chancery or Presidential Awards Committee have agreed on the names of 81 Ugandans who will be awarded medals at Kololo.

The 81 were approved by the Presidential Awards Committee from the list of those proposed.

Of the 81, 34 will receive the 50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee Medal, in recognition of their outstanding service and loyalty to the country. Among others, Enanga will be awarded the Golden Jubilee Award for his exemplary role and outstanding service in the UPF as well as for his loyalty to Uganda.

Enanga previously headed the Economic Crimes Department, CID Commander for Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP), Commandant Land Protection Police Unit, and as Commissioner CID Administration and Training. He is credited for demonstrating high professional standards in criminal investigations, including large scale corporate fraud of Shs12bn and procurement fraud.

Up to 18 of the medalists will be awarded the Luwero Triangle Medal, which is usually awarded to any officer, man and woman who joined the armed struggle against dictatorship in Uganda.
