President Yoweri Museveni has appointed former Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda as the new Gulu University Chancellor.
Rugunda, who is a Special Envoy for Special Duties in the office of the President, now replaces Prof. Frederick Kayanja.
The 75-year-old will be installed this Friday as the third Chancellor at the 18th Graduation Ceremony at Gulu University Sports Ground.
Rugunda served as Uganda’s Prime Minister for seven years (2014–2021) after replacing Amama Mbabazi, who was then dropped in a 2014 cabinet reshuffle.
The veteran politician has held a long series of cabinet posts under Museveni’s government. He served as Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1994 to 1996, and Minister of Internal Affairs from 2003 to 2009.
In the cabinet reshuffle of 27 May 2011, he was appointed as Minister of Information and Communication Technology.
In May 2013, he was moved to the post of Minister of Health, replacing Christine Ondoa.
