Museveni replaced Tumukunde with Tumwine, and Kayihura with his hitherto deputy Martin Okoth Ochola.

Parliament would later vet Tumwine, Ochola and his deputy Sabiiti Muzeei.

After vetting, Gen Tumwine said he would promote information sharing and foster unity among security agencies.

But Ochola refused to talk to the press.


Museveni, first lady Janet, and premier Ruhakana Rugunda attended Tumwine’s swearingin ceremony.

Others in attendance were: internal affairs and public service ministers Jeje Odong and Muruli Mukasa respectively.

Head of Public Service John Mitala administered the oath in a ceremony held at State House Entebbe.
