President Museveni in June surprised many when he appointed Alupo, a former minister of Education as the country’s vice president.
Museveni also appointed Robinah Nabbanja, a former junior minister of health as the Prime Minister replacing Dr Ruhakana Rugunda. Other than Nabbanja and Alupo, there is also a good presence of women who make 48 percent of the 81 strong cabinet.
