President Yoweri Museveni, the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces has replaced Maj Gen Abel Kandiho with Maj Gen James Birungi as the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence boss.

In the latest reshuffle in UPDF Kandiho has been appointed Head of South Sudan security monitoring mechanism, where he will dutifully be in charge of the assembling, screening, demobilization and integration of the armed forces of South Sudan.

The Rwandan government has on several occasions accused Maj Gen Kanduho of commanding operations targeting their citizens in Uganda insisting he gets replaced.

Last year, the US government also announced sanctions against Maj Gen Kandiho accusing him of being connected to serious human rights abuses and repressive acts. The action froze any U.S. assets owned by Kandiho and generally barred Americans from dealing with him.

However, in response, the UPDF said in a statement they were disappointed over the sanctions considering they are a reputable government institution.  The Ugandan army promised they would be seeking clarification from the US government over the matter to enable them pave a way forward.
