Womanya has been serving as head of Special Investigations Unit- SIU in Kireka. SIU is interrogations and detention centre for suspects of high profile cases.

Womanya now deputizes Brig Godfrey Golooba who was last year reverted from army into police force by President Yoweri Museveni.

The appointment comes just two month after the retirement of  Felix Ndyomugyenyi after clocking 60 years.

Senior Superintendent of Police, Mark Odongo has been appointed head of SIU which he headed in 2016 to 2017 before he was replaced with Henry Mugumya. Meanwhile, 50 DPCs have also been reshuffled.

 In the same reshuffle, Ochola has appointed acting  director traffic and road safety, Commissioner of Police Bazir Mugisha as head of curriculum development in HRD directorate.

Mugisha has been replaced with former Kampala Metropolitan Traffic Commander, Lawrence Niwabine who has been serving in the directorate of welfare and production. Niwabine previously served in the office of IGP after he had been moved from Kampala by then IGP Gen Edward Kale Kayihura.

Mugisha has been serving as acting director traffic and road safety since January this year when Assistant Inspector General of Police- AIGP Dr Steven Kasiima handed over office to him since his contract was not renewed by President Museveni.
