As President Museveni continues to entrench family and friends rule at the expense of Ugandans, it has emerged that he has appointed his personal doctor as permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health.

Dr Diana Atwine, who has been criticized by the health fraternity for setting up a parallel structure under the cover of Health monitoring unit, replaces sacked Dr Asuman Lukwago, who had fallen out with status quo.

Atwine recently made news when she caused the sacking of Health workers at Nakawuka.

It’s not yet clear how she will be received in the sensitive service ministry dogged with complaints of service delivery.
