Norbert Mao: DP President now Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs

A day after brokering a deal with President Museveni, the Democratic Party (DP) president Norbert Mao has been named as the Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs.

Museveni invoked the authority conferred in him by Articles 113 (1) and 114 (1) of the 1995 Ugandan Constitution to appoint Mao as the new minister of justice on Thursday afternoon and confirmed the development in a tweet, stating ‘By virtue of the Authority conferred on the President by articles 113(1) and 114(1) of the 1995 constitution of the republic of Uganda, I hereby appoint persons below as Cabinet and Ministers of State,’ followed by a document.

The appointment comes just one day after the president of the opposition Democratic Party met with the president and national chairman of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party and signed an agreement to collaborate.

The new reforms have also resulted in the appointment of Hamson Obua as Government Chief Whip.
The position has been vacant since Thomas Tayebwa’s departure, after which he became the deputy speaker of parliament.

Peter Ogwang replaces Obua as minister of state for sports, while Agago Woman MP Beatrice Okello becomes minister of state for economic monitoring.
