Uganda Media Centre Boss Transferred

sildenafil geneva;”>Officials at the President’s Office told Chimpreports on Friday morning that NRM spokesperson Ofwono Opondo has been appointed UMC boss, pill replacing Fred Opolot.

Opolot’s new assignment remains unclear though officials said he is set to be deployed in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Opondo will be deputized by former army spokesperson, Col Shaban Bantariza.

In 2011, Bantariza was accused of embezzling shs400m during his reign as head of the National Leadership Institute (NALI), charges he denied.

He enrolled at the Senior Command and Staff College Kimaka where he graduated in 2007.

Upon graduation, Bantariza was deployed at the Army headquarters as Deputy Chief Political Commissar in 2008 before being named Commandant of the Oliver Tambo College, Kaweweta, from where he was transferred to Kyankwanzi in 2009.

Observers say the decision to bring on board Bantariza is aimed at breathing new life into UMC which was not performing to the President’s expectations.

There have also been reports of internal wrangling among officials at UMC.

Efforts to contact Opolot were futile as he could not pick our telephone calls.
