Former Principal Private Secretary to the president, Grace Akello has also been posted to head the Rome mission. She was replaced by Mary Amajo. The President has also appointed Andrew Munanura Karokora as the new Deputy Inspector General of Government (IGG).

The latest appointments come at the heels of a cabinet reshuffle that attracted a backlash from the public. Many including the leader of opposition Nandala Mafabi described it mainly as a “recycle” of old loyalists with questionable records.

The new cabinet saw former Disaster Preparedness Minister, Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere, bounce back to head the Gender ministry, Frank Tumwebaze, the Kibale County MP become Minister In-charge of the Presidency a docket previously held by Kabakumba Masiko who resigned over illegal use of Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (UBC) equipment.

The President also appointed Sam Kutesa, John Nasasira and Mwesigwa Rukutana who had stepped aside over corruption charges to head the Foreign Affairs ministry and General Duties under the Prime Minister’s office.

In short, Nasasira replaced Khiddu Makubuya and Tarsis Kabwegere Syda Bbumba. The two were fired over the Shs.142 billion controversial compenasation to city tycoon Hassan Basajjabalaba.
