Sacked Internal Security Organisation (ISO) Director General, Col. Frank Kaka Bagyenda has been appointed Uganda’s Ambassador to Angola, this website has learnt.
According to sources at Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Col. Bagyenda was posted to Luanda as the pioneer diplomat after Uganda decided to open an embassy in the central African country previously occupied by Portugal.
Col. Bagyenda was sacked two weeks and replaced by Lt.Col. Charles Oluka the former head of Technical at the spy agency.
However, sources close to Col. Bagyenda said that former spy master wasn’t interested in heading to Angola as a diplomat.
It is reported that after sacking Col. Bagyenda, President Yoweri Museveni telephoned him and informed him about the appointment but Bagyenda instead informed the head of state that he preferred remaining in Uganda to revert back to fishing in Kalangala Islands.
Col. Bagyenda isn’t the first former DG-ISO to be appointed a diplomat as his predecessor Brig. Ronnie Balya was appointed Uganda’s Ambassador to South Sudan after he was dropped from same position.
