Controversial war veteran Kasirye Gwanga who was recently promoted from Brigadier to Major General has today skipped the decoration ceremony which took place at the Ministry of Defence in Mbuya.

Kasirye Gwanga was among the seven UPDF soldiers who were supposed to be pipped following promotion by President Yoweri Museveni.

According to army spokesperson Brig. Richard Karemire, Kasirye Gwanga didn’t show up at the function because he was caught up by other assignments.

The pipped high ranking officers include;

Brig Rwabantu to Maj Gen (Deputy General officer Commanding Reserves)

Col Charles Wacha to Brig (Director Human Rights )

Col Charles Byanyima to Brig (Commander Motorised Infantry Brigade).

Col Henry Isoke to Brig (Deputy CMI)

Col James Nambale to Brig (Adjutant General Headquarters )

Col Kagoro Asingura to Brig (Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs Legal Officer)
