Facts on the recently promoted army officers

Maj. Gen. Fred Mugisha
Born in 1963, he was the commander of the Field Artillery Division based in Masindi. He was then promoted and appointed overall commander of the African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia.

He is Soviet-trained in artillery and air defence, having attended Simferopol Academy between 1987 and 1989. He has also attended training in the US, Tanzania, India, China, Egypt and South Africa.

Mugisha previously served under various capacities, including being the deputy chief of intelligence.

Maj. Gen. Charles Angina
He is one of the representatives of the army in the Ninth Parliament. He was formerly Chief of Staff of the Land Forces before he was transferred to the General Court Martial as chairman.

So, it can be said that being appointed Chief of Staff of the Land Forces is only a return to his former post.
