Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has named his Cabinet retaining the prime minister, vice president, and Finance and Energy minister positions.
Museveni, 71 has also appointed his wife Janet to the Ministry of Education and Sports which has for years been dogged by students’, teachers’ and lecturers’ strikes.
Mrs Museveni also faces growing criticism over quality of education that has beleaguered the sector since the introduction of Universal Primary Education.
Earlier Mrs Museveni served in the Ministry of Karamoja, which was for long considered unattractive once being famously rejected by a former minister and bush war fighter Tom Butiime because it suffered chronic under funding. When the president’s wife took over, Karamoja gained new life as she easily attracted both resources and national attention to it.
