President Yoweri Museveni swung the axe on Saturday 20th June 2020. Museveni who is also the NRM National Party Chairman, made the proposals to the Central Executive Committee (CEC) sitting at State House in Entebbe,” Rogers Mulindwa, the party Publicity Secretary said in a statement.
He has replaced him with Medina Naham, the party chairperson in Koboko District.
The resolution was reached on Saturday during the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting that took place at State House Entebbe.
The ruling party chairperson also appointed former Butaleja Member Parliament Emmanuel Dombo as Director of Information and Publicity.
The same reshuffle has also seen Kyatuheire Jacqueline being confirmed by CEC as Deputy National Treasurer and Mathias Kisamba as Director mobilisation.
“The approval of the new office bearers is scheduled for Tuesday (tomorrow),” Mulindwa added.
