The Internal Security Organisation [ISO] has redeployed Private Emilly Katabazi as its new Deputy Director of Mass Media.
Pt Katabazi is a former aide of former presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi.
Katabazi became infamous for harassing journalists when he worked for Mbabazi at a time he was serving as the country’s prime minister.
During 2015 presidential campaigns, he was accused of absconding from duty and making public statements without authorisation from the army.
According to state, between May 21, and 27 2015, while deployed at the ISO headquarters, Nakasero, without authority, Katabazi went to Jinja, Mbale, Soroti, Lira, Gulu, Arua and Yumbe district.
He then made public statements which led to his arrest and subsequent trial in the army court. He was later cleared of all charges.
The army then sent him on a military course for nine months which he completed after 2016.
After apologising to the president, he was redeployed to ISO.
