President Museveni has appointed Brig. Gen. Henry Isoke as the new head of the State House Anti-Corruption Unit, replacing Col. Edith Nakalema who is on a study course.
This was announced by Faruk Kirunda, the Deputy Press Secretary to the President, on Tuesday evening.
“H.E the President has appointed Brig. Gen. Isoke Henry as the new head of the State House Anti-Corruption Unit replacing Col. Nakalema who is on a course. Congs, Gen. Isoke!” he tweeted.
Col Nakalema and several Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) commanders above the rank of Colonel have been sent on a one-year training at the newly established National Defence College in Jinja District.
The others are Defence Ministry spokesperson Brig Flavia Byekwaso, and Brig Peter Chandia, the acting Commander of Special Forces Command.
In April, President Museveni promoted Col Nakalema from Lt Colonel three years after completing a higher command and staff course at the Joint Services Command and Staff College, in Watchfield, Oxfordshire, UK.
President Museveni has on several occasions praised Col Nakalema for her fight against corruption.
