    Seeing new faces on the cabinet list gives hope to the young. Why should someone monopolise a ministry like it was made for him. We need to give as many people as possible chance to take part in the admin of this country. One day we shall have a different PERSON appointing ministers for this country

  16. Proud to have Agnes Nandutu, Gidudu Mafabi on the cabinate. Basaale murambe ni khamaani. Wele arinde

  17. At least this time round there is some gender balance among da cabinet / supervisors

  18. HE has realised that nothing much can be done without women.So it wwas good to balance gender.Women are more dependable,hardworking and less corrupt.

  19. H.E has realised that the country cant do without women.They are hardworking,focused ,more dependable and less corrupt.Lets wait to see how they deliver.
    Without a womans support you cant reach far.

  20. NKWASIIBWE ISAAC

    God is adding more wisdom to H.E the president of Uganda, am happy seeing other regions taking parts in this cabinet….. and more so i congratulate Allupo and all the women.

  21. RACHAEL CHEMUSTO

    even though very few are from the eastern Region im pleased with the gender equality. well lets hope for good service delivery.
    Ladies in power we move

  22. MOSES Ali has been given another punishment. This man was hoping to go back home and enjoy his grandchildren. There must be something great in him that the president have seen him. Papa Moses endure and serve your country
