Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni has reappointed his eldest son, Leuitenant General Muhoozi Kainerugaba as the head of Uganda’s Special Forces Command, an elite unit with the responsibility of guarding the president and first family.
General Kainerugaba has had a meteoric rise through the ranks of the army, having trained at the British Academy Sandhurst and other military programmes in the Us, Egypt and South Africa.
He also serves as presidential advisor on special operations and regains his position as head of the Special Forces Command, after more than a decade.
The move is part of a wider reshuffle within security agencies. The reshuffle comes less than a month before what is expected to be a fiercely contested presidential election, in which President Museveni is looking to extend his rule to four decades
