The President is expected to release the cabinet today Monday or Tuesday.

The number two political position in the land is expected to be taken by a Catholic from Buganda Region for purposes of regional and religious balance.
Insiders say Beti Kamya was tipped to take the position but was still facing resistance from the President’s strategists who believe such a move would demoralise the ruling party.
Others said she no longer wields considerable political influence in the opposition and that her appointment would make the Cabinet unpopular.

The President is hugely expected to make significant changes in the Energy, Oil and Roads sectors.
Energy Minister Irene Muloni is likely to face an axe over the poor workmanship at the Karuma and Isimba Dams.
Roads and Transport Minister Eng John Byabagambi could retain his position as Museveni would be worried of antagonizing the western bloc and the Catholic Church which enormously back the Ibanda South MP.
Sources say Karooro Okurut will be moved from the Security Docket. Information Minister Jim Muhwezi could take over ICT with John Nasasira preparing for retirement.
Sam Kutesa is anticipated to retain the position of Foreign Affairs Minister.
“The President has consulted widely on these appointments. He is keen on naming a popular cabinet as this is his last term in office. Many young people have been vetted but the job of naming Cabinet members rests in his hands,” said a highly placed security official.
The budget speech will be held on Wednesday at the Serena Conference Center in Kampala.
