In a reshuffle announced Wednesday afternoon, Gen. Muhoozi also retains his appointment as Senior Presidential Advisor handling security issues he has been handling.
The president has also re-appointed Martin Okoth Ochola as the Inspector General of Police, while his Deputy Maj. Gen. Sabiti Muzeyi goes back to GHQS for redeployment.
