President Yoweri Museveni, the Commander-In-Chief of armed forces has appointed his blue-eyed boy Maj Gen Don Nabasa as the new commander of Military Police, Daily Monitor has learnt.
Maj Gen Nabasa has been a contingent commander in Somalia under AMISOM for about a year before his new deployment.

The deputy defense spokesperson Lt. Col Ronald Kakulungu confirmed the new development.
"Yes, it is true the officers have been transferred but the details of the transfer shall be availed tomorrow (Tuesday)," he said.
