HEALTH PS: Dr Diana Atwiine

Doctor Diana Atwiine is the new Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health.

Dr Atwiine, hitherto the Head of the State House Health Monitoring Unit, replaces Dr Asuman Lukwago. By press time it was not possible to establish Dr Lukwago’s new assignment, but he has been a troubled man, usually engaged in spats with health ministry officials including the Minister Dr Jane Ruth Aceng.

Before her appointment as minister, Dr Aceng was the Director General of health services, a position junior to Lukwago’s, and this sent tongues wagging about the two not working in harmony.
