Uganda People’s Defense Forces have appointed Lt Col Barigye Bahoku to replace Col Felix Kulaigye as chief political commissar.

Lt Col Barigye Bahoku, was appointed chief police commissar in acting capacity.

Kulaigye was suspended by CDF Gen Katumba Wamala in the wake of the gold scam he was involved in a couple of weeks ago.

Bahoku who was spokesman for Amisom some years ago will sit in for Col Kulaigye until the court case against Kulaigye is dealt away with.
