Brig General Charles Bakahumura, the outgoing Chief of Military Intelligence was appointed Chief of Logistics and Engineering, the heart of the efficiency of any professional army like UPDF.

President Museveni could not have appointed a better person to the position.

Gen Bakahumura who hails from Kamwenge in Toro has been CMI boss for the past five years, which made him the longest serving CMI since 1986. The key strategic position has been occupied in the past by Mugisha Muntu, Noble Mayombo, Leopold Kyanda and James Mugira.

The new CMI is now Lt. Col. Abel Kandiho.

Kandiho arrives at CMI at the time the intelligence arm of the military is clear of human rights abuses.
