New Ministers take office today

New ministerial appointees are expected to be sworn in today.

The 71 ministers were vetted and approved by the Appointments committee of Parliament last week.

They will take their oaths at State House, Entebbe.

Four out of the 75 ministers vetted are reportedly not on the confirmed list of ministers to be sworn in.

Among them is Minister without Portfolio, Nasser Ssebagala; former State Minister in charge of Primary Health Care, James Kakooza; State Minister for Bunyoro Affairs, Saleh Kamba and State Minister for Investment, Mbabaali Muyanja.

Ssebagala, Kakooza, Kamba and Mbabaali’s appointments were rejected by the committee due to queries on their academic credentials and morals

The 2nd Deputy Prime Minister and Public Service Minister, Henry Kajura, whose appointment had been uncertain on account of his advanced age, is however on the list of those to be sworn in.
