A senior army officer could face a storm as information emerges that his closeness to a certain regional government is worrying his superiors.

The flamboyant General is said to be in good books with the regional State House and is reported to be making endless journeys there in the name of work-related activities.

However, what is giving the Kampala establishment sleepless nights is that this very General is close to the powers that be. However, other senior players and observers say although the ‘Old Man with the hat’ has previously been confiding a lot in this very officer, his reliance on him could be dwindling, given the latest briefing about his blue-eyed boy.

Sources say the reports about this individual could further be complicated by the fact that the officer himself and his wife are linked to the said country.
