Meanwhile, President Yoweri Museveni who is also the Commander in Chief of the armed forces has appointed former Special Forces Command boss, Maj. Gen Don Nabasa as the new Military Police commander.
According to sources, the mini-changes announced last evening saw Nabasa replace Brig Keith Katungi who has now been sent to Somalia as the Contingent Commander, a position that Nabasa held until yesterday.
Prior to being sent to Somalia, Gen. Nabasa before being replaced by Maj. Gen James Birungi, served as the commander of the Special Forces Command, an elite unit that is responsible for the security of the President of Uganda and special operations.
Maj. Gen Don Nabasa was later sent for a one- year training course at the National Defence College in China and after completing the training in August last year, he was sent to Somalia to succeed Brig. Richard Otto as the Contingent Commander of the Ugandan troops serving under the AMISOM. END
