Row over Muntu position in Army Council

The UPDF High Command after a recent meeting. 

The army and some opposition politicians are involved in a disagreement about the position of former army commander Mugisha Muntu, and currently FDC president, in the Army Council.

Appearing before the Defence Committee in Parliament, Butambala County MP Muwanga Kivumbi put to task the Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi, and his colleague Rosette Byengoma Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Defence why Muntu does not get invitation to army council meetings by virtue of his position as former UPDF commandant.

As expected, Muhoozi and colleagues said the former army commander (1989-1998) does not honour the invites to his meetings because of his political inclination. However speaking to journalists, Muntu rubbished the talk saying he has never received any invitation nor does he have a military aide to help with the communication as the UPDF had said.
