The Police would like to inform the general public that the information circulating on social media that Commissioner of Police, Alalo Christine, who is serving under the African Union, as Deputy Police Commissioner, is the sole Ugandan victim, on the Ethiopian Flight, ET 302, that crashed this morning killing all passengers and 8 crew members, is still not confirmed.
We are aware the senior officer traveled to Italy and was scheduled to return to her duty station, in Somalia today. The Director Peace Support Operations, who coordinates all Peace keeping activities, is in touch with our Liaison Officers in Nairobi, Kenya, and in Somalia; and is yet to obtain any information surrounding the status of our Senior Officer, through the Office of the Senior Resident Commissioner, AMISOM.
The Police will quickly share any information upon obtaining details from either her duty station and or the management of Ethiopian Airlines, who have not availed any details. We continue to pray and hope for good news and kindly request the public and in particular her family to remain calm as we wait for any new developments.
