Col Frank Kaka Bagyenda, the Former Internal Security Organisation boss (ISO) who was mysteriously sacked and immediately replaced has been appointed Uganda’s ambassador to Angola.
Col Kaka was early this month fired by President Yoweri Museveni and replaced by Charles Oluka with immediate effect.
He had been serving in that position since January 2017 with the responsibility of providing national security intelligence to Uganda’s policymakers.
He replaced Brigadier Ronnie Balya, who was appointed Uganda’s ambassador to South Sudan, based in Juba.
Col.Kaka was reportedly entangled in multiple accusations of detaining and torturing suspects in safe houses which was damaging the reputation of the state spy agency.
This new deployment to Luanda also makes it the first time that the country is sending a representative there.
According to information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Uganda has just opened up an embassy in Angola’s Capital and kaka is the first head to be deployed.
Kaka’s assignments in the military included the commanding officer of a brigade based in Kampala, head of the directorate of transport, a member of the then Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI), which today is the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI).
He also served in Uganda’s Northern Region, where commanded a brigade in the early 1990s.
