President Yoweri Museveni today presided over the swearing-in of new Security Minister, Gen Elly Tumwine at State House, Entebbe. Tumwine was vetted last week on Tuesday by the Parliamentary following his appointment on Sunday, March 4.
“I urge security personnel and the public service at large to work as a team because it is the surest way to success. When you work as a team you benefit from the knowledge of others. People should contribute their ideas and ensure success thereafter. People should not be shy to help each other in terms of management”, Museveni stated.
“Our security sector needs to keep up with advancements in technology. There is nothing that the Government cannot acquire if it is important. All technology gaps must be filled.The security leadership must also keep re-orienting their staff. The security personnel must know their mission and be able to fulfill it.”
Museveni congratulated Gen Tumwine upon his new appointment and wished him well.
