Museveni reshuffles his cabinet

NEW OPENING: Outgoing finance minister Maria Kiwanuka seen last year with now-former prime minister Amama Mbabazi, Speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga and President Museveni

President Museveni on Sunday announced a cabinet reshuffle, with Finance Minister Maria Kiwanuka the most notable victim. Kiwanuka was made a presidential advisor on Finance, with the president hoping to use her previous World Bank experience; she is in charge of the Bretton Woods institutions.

Another big name thrown out is Peter Nyombi, who has been attorney general.

Below is Museveni's statement and new cabinet lineup.

In Exercise of Powers conferred on the President of Uganda by Articles 99, 108(A) (1), 108 (2), 113(1), 114 (1) of the 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, I have appointed and re-appointed the Vice President, Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers and Ministers as listed below:

I have also restructured the Ministry of Education and Sports to the Ministry of Education, Sports, Science and Technology.
