Uganda’s President has namedYoweri Museveni Museveni has appointed new directors and deputy directors at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
This followed a meeting between KCCA’s ED Dorothy Kisaka with the President recently.
Kisaka had led her technical team to answer annual audit queries arising from the Auditor General’s annual report.
You will recall that the Kisaka led team which has had leadership gaps at the top leadership level was faulted for returning funds meant for recruting more workers. The funds totalling 13.5billion were returned to the consolidated fund in FY 21-22 without recruiting workers.
The team explained that recruitment is a function of the Commissions. The health workers are recruited by the Health Service Commission, and the recruitment of teachers is a function of the Education Service Commission. The recruitment process was delayed because of the the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, we have now learnt that the Public Service Commission chaired by Mrs Musoke Kabogoza has completed its work of recruitment of the directors and deputy directors
A reliable source can reveal that H.E. the President has filled the gaps at KCCA and appointed six new Directors in the Directorates.
The new directors include those for Engineering and Technical Services, Treasury Services, Legal Affairs, Gender and Community Services.
They will commence their duties after due process. Likewise new Deputy directors have been recruited and will soon commence work
While we may not be able to reveal the names of the new entrants at this time, we can confirm that KCCA top leadership line up is boosted with six new directors which will ease the oversight role of the top leadership. More updates to follow on this.
The process of recruitment for the other levels is on-going even as whistleblowers continue to speculate on which posts are yet to be filled.
The head of Directorate of Administration and Human Resource Ms Grace Akullo has not yet published the full new list of the new entrants.
Its said that the leader at Public Service Commission will not allow any recruitment without competencies and is scrutinising every application intently.
