President Yoweri Museveni has yet again demoted his new political nemesis, Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga who has been denounced as the 1st Deputy Prime Minister contrary to the Vice President slot he had pledged for her.
The VP slot has been scooped by former Education Minister, Maj. Jessica Alupo who will take on from Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi. Ms. Alupo was trounced in the 2016 polls after the people from Teso region accused her of failing the education sector.
Reliable sources say Alupo’s appointment is largely influenced by former PM Amama Mbabazi who is said to have been her key seconder. It is said the Mbabazi urged Tibuhaburwa to appoint women in the slots of VP and PM. Robinah Nabbanja who has been the state Minister for health is now to take on the duties of the head of government business.
