ISO Chief Ronnie Balya Redeployed

Internal Security Organisation boss Brig. Ronnie Balya has been reassigned by President Museveni, case Chimp Corps report.

In what appears a major shake-up of security forces, Brig. Balya is being appointed an Ambassador.

Balya has been replaced by Maj Kaka, an old guard in the intelligence community.

Maj Kaka has been gathering intelligence for the last 20 years from his base in Kalangala.

He owns a commercial property in Kalangala island known as Panorama Cottages and hails from Ibanda District, Western Uganda

Kaka served in the National Resistance Army (NRA) that brought Museveni to power in 1986.

The replacement marks the end of Balya’s reign as a top intelligence chief.

It’s said he was not at good terms with Gen Kale Kayihura who was allocated a big chunk of funds for espionage in the wake of the 2010 Kampala terror attacks.

The removal of Balya from the helm of civilian intelligence comes against the backdrop of a major UPDF reshuffle that saw high ranking army chiefs redeployed.
