  1. it is a well-come move. overstaying in one position breeds impunity and stale thinking

  2. Afande Katumba congs! A very welcome en fantastic move ever in UPDF. Bravo Wamala one again. Guys it seems the fellow is planning to handover the power to young generation. Oba who is targeting? Atte gwe why are old dogs busting into anger seems the deal has fallen off old generation

  3. Thats seems to be a kind of Demotion and parhaps stressing for Aronda, from 1st Ranking position to the 30th one,But that’s Normal.
