Pius Bigirimana the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development has been transferred to Judiciary.
The transfer letter is signed by Head of Public Service and Secretary to Cabinet, Dr John Mitala.
"The appointing authority has directed that you be transferred from the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development to the Judiciary as Secretary to the Judiciary with immediate effect,” Dr Mitala said in a July 26 letter.
“On receipt of this letter, prepare to handover your office within the existing regulations and report to your new station without delay,” he added.
Bigirimana has served the Ministry of Gender for the last six years, having been moved from Office of the Prime Minister in May 2013.
He replaces Kagole Kivumbi who is at the centre of alleged misappropriation of over Shs34billion. Kivumbi, together with other Judiciary officials were early this month quizzed by the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) over the financial scam.
