Old guards miss out in cabinet

Kiyonga

A much awaited new-look cabinet named by President Museveni Monday afternoon has seen the old guards miss out on hitherto assured offices.

Notably missing are bush war veteran Jim Muhwezi who bounced back in a reshuffle in the last term; Cripus Kiyonga and Henry Kajura.

The three ruling NRM party heavyweights also lost their constituencies in the February general elections.

The trio also did not contest the results of the elections having conceded defeat and pledging to work with their victors.

Otafiire still in

Justice and constitutional affairs minister Kahinda Otafiire seems to have weathered the storm, in every sense of the word, after he lost his seat in the NRM party primaries and consequently, in the elections where he stood as an independent.

The fiery retired general has retained his portfolio in the new cabinet.

The ministers that did not return: They are Muhwezi Jim,  Jesca Alupo, Crispus Kiyonga, Sezi Mbaguta Prisca, Daudi Migyereko, Fred Ruhindi, John Nasasira, Abraham Byandala, Maria Mutagamba, Henry Banyenzaki, Ounda Nekesa, Nyirazurababeri Mijjumbi, Tokodria Tagba, Aston Kajjara,Isanga Lukia Nakadama, Kamanda Bataringaya, Rosemary Najjemba, Nabugera Flavia Munnaba, Nyombi Thembo, Sheim Bagaine.
