Special Forces Commander Maj Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has been appointed Special Presidential Advisor in charge of operations.

Deputy CDF Lt Gen Charles Angina takes over as Deputy Commander Operation Wealth Creation, in what is seen as a demotion.

Brigadier Peter Elweru shifts from Mbarara where he has been serving as 2nd Division commander to take charge of Land Forces.

He is now at the rank of Major General.

Elweru commanded the operation that saw UPDF Commandos raid Rwenzururu palace and capture King Wesley Mumbere.

    Is this true??

  • UU

    It is true because it’s not fools day. This is kisangya hakuma mutchezo.

  • John Okel

    Elwelu the man…….hmmmmmmm

  • WADADA. M.R

    So Katumba has been demoted to a mere State Minister, its a pity

  • WADADA. M.R

    In other words, you should have written that Museveni demotes Katumba

  • David Rubereza

    This is mere re-deployment! The way some people are up in arms about Katumba indicates that maybe he was up to no good! Katumba has spent more time than M7’s own brother in that position. General Saleh (the greatest soldier in Uganda’s history) did not spend even a year as Army Commander. So what is the fuss about? As for the 4 time failure Besigye, he should keep to his failed opposition politics and not talk about the great state he has failed to remove.
