President Museveni who is also the commander in chief of the armed forces has dropped Maj.Gen.Don Nabasa as the Special Forces Commander and replaced him with Maj.Gen.James Birungi.
Birungi has been the Air Force Chief of Staff.
The mini army reshuffle came on Tuesday evening and according to sources, Nabasa is expecting to be going out of the country for further studies prompting his replacement as SFC commander.
He is expected to be going for the National Defence Course in China.
SFC spokesperson, Maj.Jimmy Omara confirmed the development.
The Special Forces Command is a UPDF elite unit mandated with guarding the President and members of the first family.
The unit also carries out special missions to complement the UPDF like it was deployed in Somalia to help fight Al Shabaab snipers who were killing Ugandan soldiers.
The deployment of SFC snipers changed the game and it turned against the terrorist group that was forced to abandon Mogadishu where they operated freely especially in tall buildings.
