President Museveni has carried out a mini cabinet reshuffle, switching two ministers from their different portfolios.
According to a press release from State House Entebbe, Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere, who had initially been named Minister of Gender and Labour, now takes over the General Duties portfolio currently held by John Nasasira.
Nasasira has been shifted to the Gender Ministry.
Kabwegyere was appointed to cabinet last month and his appointment was queried at the appointments committee with some female legislators urging the President to appoint a woman in this docket.
He was, however, cleared recently.
In a related development, the President will swear-in the new ministers on October 30 at State House, Nakasero.
The new faces in cabinet who are due to be sworn in include Frank Tumwebaze, Minister for the Presidency, Richard Todwong Minister without Portfolio in-charge of political mobilisation, Aidha Nantaba, Minister of State for Lands, and Ernest Kiiza, Minister of State for Bunyoro Affairs.
Others are Rosemary Najjemba, Minister of State for Urban Development, Sarah Kataike Ndoboli, Minister of State for Health and Shem Bagaine Minister of State for East African Affairs.
Tumwebaze on Saturday confirmed that they had been contacted by State House officials to attend the function.
“Yes, I received an invitation to be at State House Nakasero for the swearing in ceremony on Tuesday,” he said.
