Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has appointed 82 cabinet ministers.

Museveni released a long-awaited list of new Cabinet ministers and ministers of state late on Tuesday.

Among the ministers is his wife, Janet Museveni whom he appointed as the Minister of Education.

Museveni further surprised Ugandans by appointing women to the major key posts of vice president and prime minister.

The list has come after the country has gone more than three weeks without a cabinet after Museveni dissolved the one in place on the day of his swearing-in on May 12, 2021.

Museveni was re-elected president of Uganda in elections that took place on Jan. 14, 2021.
