Speaking at the ceremony, Museveni tasked the security leadership to keep re-orienting their staff and also work as a team.

"I urge security personnel and the public service at large to work as a team because it is the surest way to success. When you work as a team you benefit from the knowledge of others" Museveni said.

Museveni congratulated Tumwiine, who he said was his student in 1967 and later joined him as a freedom fighter.

He said the security sector needs to keep up with advancements in technology adding that there is nothing that the government cannot acquire if it is important. "All technology gaps must be filled" Museveni emphasized.

Every thing is limited to the same region and yet we hear: no sectarianism, ethnicity, nepotism, what a fallacy!!

His appointment amounts to old wine in new bottles, these guys need to retire and give the younger generation a gap, old people are not bad, for they are like the old brooms but the problem is that they are too many in the cabinet, look at Naduli, Kirunda Kivejinja, Saida Bumba, Moses Ali etch, and the obvious one, these would take on the role of grooming the young ones
