The chairman of the Patriotic League of Uganda (PLU), Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, has made several new appointments as the organization aims to broaden its appeal across various sections of the population.

The newly appointed officials include the state minister for ICT, Godfrey Kabbyanga, as well as two members of Parliament and three district chairpersons.

Kabbyanga has been assigned the role of Rwenzori PLU coordinator, while the MPs, Martin Mapenduzi and Jackson Atima, will oversee the Acholi and Greater Arua regions respectively as coordinators. The district chairpersons appointed are Didas Tabaro (Mbarara), Sam Kajojo (Kanungu), and Nelson Nshangabasheija (Kabale).

Furthermore, Nshangabasheija and the Tooro Kingdom foreign affairs minister, Henry Basaliza, have been named as coordinators for the Kigezi and Tooro sub-regions respectively, while Tabaro and Kajojo will serve as deputy coordinators for the Ankole and Kigezi sub-regions respectively.

These appointments come after the recent grand launch of PLU in Kampala, where Kabbyanga, Mapenduzi, and several district chairpersons were prominent figures.

The list of new appointees was released by the PLU deputy spokesperson, Daudi Kabanda, who is also the Kasambya County MP, on social media platform X.

Polly Karamuzi and Joyce Walemba have been appointed as spokespersons for the Ankole and Rwenzori Women respectively, adding to the diverse leadership team.

Among the top brass of PLU are individuals such as events promoter Balaam Barugahara, businessman Frank Gashumba, Kitgum Woman NRM MP Lillian Aber, and veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda, serving in various capacities.

Additionally, leaders such as Michael Nuwagira (aka Toyota) and Igara East NRM MP Micheal Mawanda, both members of the organization’s central committee, contribute to the leadership structure.

The PLU commissioner for external relations is Michael Katungi, a seasoned security and diplomacy expert, while state ministers Peter Ogwang and Haruna Kasolo Kyeyune serve as coordinators for Teso and Greater Masaka sub-regions respectively.

Other notable figures in PLU include Tingey County NRM MP Fadil Twalla, President Museveni’s brother Shadrack Nzeire, Rakai Resident District Commissioner Sarah Kiyimba, and entrepreneur Judith Mukidi, each fulfilling important roles within the organization.

Following the launch of PLU in February 2024, Gen. Kainerugaba expressed gratitude to the millions of supporters and well-wishers, emphasizing that the journey had just begun.

The PLU, formerly known as the MK Movement, aims to mobilize Ugandans towards the shared goals of national unity, peace, and stability. Originating as a grassroots movement, it has evolved into a structured organization with a clear vision for the future, under the leadership of Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba.
