Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni yesterday made sweeping changes in the army and cabinet. Gen Aronda Nyakairima, who has been Chief of Defence Forces (CDF), is now minister of Internal Affairs.
The new CDF is Lt Gen Katumba Wamala who has been commander, Land Forces. Brig David Muhoozi, who has been commander of the Mechanized Brigade in Masaka, is the new commander of Land Forces.
The change is coming just days after a military coup was executed in Zimbabwe to unseat the long-serving President Robert Mugabe.
