“Yes, that one I can confirm, he was promoted to General,” said Onyango.


This puts Kayihura at the same rank with his nemesis Gen David Sejusa (Tinyefuza).


Recently, Sejusa wrote a scathing letter to the media, blasting Kayihura, whom he addressed as “that junior officer” for reportedly harassing the embattled General’s staff.


Other UPDF Generals in Uganda include Katumba Wamala, President Yoweri Museveni, Aronda Nyakairima, Sejusa, Salim Saleh, Elly Tumwiine, Jeje Odong and Moses Ali.


Who is Kayihura?

Kayihura is a Ugandan lawyer, soldier and policeman.


He has served as IGP since 2005 when he replaced General Edward Katumba Wamala.


General Kayihura is still an active member of Uganda’s military and was previously the Head of the Country’s Revenue Protection Services as well as a Senior Commander during the Congo Civil War.


He is the son of the late John Komuluyange Kalekezi, one of the Ugandans who fought for the East African nation’s independence in 1962.


His mother is Catherine Mukarwamo, first-born child of the first county chief of then Nyakabande, the late Nyamihana, father to Justice Joseph Mulenga Nyamihana, the departed Supreme Court judge.


They hail from Uganda’s Kisoro district that borders the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda.


He studied his primary school at Mutolere primary school and lower high school at Mutolere secondary school under the care of his maternal grandmother, the late Sofia Nyamihana.


His brilliance in school caught the attention of his paternal uncle, late Frank Gasasira, an accomplished civil servant who took over responsibility of his school and enrolled him to the best boys’ catholic school then, St Mary’s College Kisubi for Advanced Secondary School certificate.


He excelled in Drama, History, Literature and Economics and obtained maximum grades to join Makerere University Kampala for an honours Bachelors in Law (LLB) degree.


Kayihura’s maximum grade again earned him admission to London School where he obtained a Masters degree in Law (LLM).


Straight from London school and aged 26, he joined the National Resistance Army, a rebel outfit that fought the regime of Dr. Milton Obote and captured power in 1986.
