Dorothy Kisaka has been appointed by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as the new executive director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
In a July 21 letter addressed to the minister of Public Service, Wilson Muruli Mukasa by the chairman of the Public Service Commission justice Ralph Ochan, Eng David Luyimbazi Ssali was also confirmed as the deputy executive director and Grace Akullo as the director of human resource and management at KCCA.
Kisaka, an advisor in the Office of the Prime Minister and administer of the COVID-19 fund, will now replace Eng Andrew Kitaka who has been holding the office in an acting capacity since 2018.
Last month, the president nominated Kisaka and four others to take up different positions in KCCA and directed the Public Service Commission to interview them to find out whether they are suitable for the positions.
Also nominated was Dr Daniel Okello Ayen for the position of director public health and environment, a position he currently holds in an acting capacity and Sarah Kanyike, then deputy Kampala mayor for the position of director gender, community service and administration.
However, the president has since appointed Kanyike as the state minister the Disability and the Elderly, a position within the Ministry of Gender that has remained vacant for several years.
