After December’s cabinet reshuffle by President Museveni, Uganda’s Tourism Ministry has a new leader. Honourable Tom Rwakaikara Butime has taken over from Hon. Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu as leader of the Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities (MTWA).
The ceremony was held at the Ministry premises at Rwenzori Towers in Kampala. Prof. Kamuntu has been appointed Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs.
Staff at the MTWA applauded the great leadership and service of the former Minister and wished him the very best in his new appointment as he continues to serve the country.
Butime was transferred from the Uganda Ministry of Local Government after a major cabinet reshuffle last December while he was on leave and only recently returned to office to take up his new posting.
Colonel (Retired) Tom Butime was born in 1947 and is a Member of Parliament for Mwenge County Central, Kyenjojo District, in western Uganda.
