President Kaguta Museveni has appointed Jenifer Bamuturaki as the new substantive Chief Executive Officer of Uganda Airlines. This is according to a July 5, 2022 letter by the Minister of Works and Transport, Gen Edward Katumba Wamala, to the Board Chairperson Uganda Airlines.

After months of serving in acting capacity, Jennifer Bamuturaki, has been appointed as substantive Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Uganda Airlines. She replaces Cornwell Muleya.

Bamuturaki’s appointment was approved by President Yoweri Museveni through a letter from the works and transport minister, Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala, to the chairperson of the Uganda Airlines board.

Last month, the national carrier advertised the CEO position just three days after former CEO Cornwell Muleyi was charged by the Inspectorate of Government for disobeying the Inspectorate’s orders.
