President Yoweri Museveni, the Commander-in-Chief of the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF), has appointed Major General Joseph Musanyufu as the Joint Chief of Staff (JCOS).

Previously a Brigadier and the Chief of Personnel and Administration in the UPDF, Gen Musanyufu replaces Lt. Gen Wilson Mbadi, who was early this week named the Deputy Chief of Defence Forces (D/CDF) in a military shake-up that saw the former army boss and his deputy reassigned other duties. In the same reshuffle the first son and Commander of the Special Forces Command (SFC) Maj Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, was named Special Advisor in charge of Operations.
