President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who is the Commander in Chief (CIC) has made a mini reshuffle in the UPDF establishment and Uganda Police firing Deputy Inspector of Police, Sabiiti Muzeeyi.
In the shakeup, Museveni has renewed IGP Martin Okoth Ochola’s contract but dropped his deputy Maj. Gen. Sabiiti Muzeeyi who has been taken back to army headquarters for redeployment.
In his statement, Museveni accused Sabiiti of failing to stop lawlessness. Sabiiti has beenreplaced by Maj. Gen. Paul Lokech.
Museveni also returned his son Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba as the commander of Special Forces Group (SFC), an elite force tasked to protect the first family and Uganda’s strategic areas.
Muhoozi will take over from Maj. Gen. James Birungi who has been leading the lethal unit since 2019.
James replaced Don Nabaasa who had succeeded Gen. Muhoozi.
Museveni in 2017 transferred Muhoozi from SFC to senior Presidential advisor on special operations.
