President Museveni has made changes at Kampala Capital City Authority’s (KCCA)— appointing Ms. Dorothy Kisaka as a substantive executive director.

Ms. Kisaka has replaced Andrew Mubiru Kitaka who served for 1 and half years in acting capacity.

The President has appointed four more directors including deputy KCCA executive director Eng. David Luyimbazi Saali who has replaced Samuel Sserunkuma.

“I’m writing to request you to interview for me the following persons and find out whether they are suitable to run the indicated offices in Kampala Capital City Authority,” the president wrote in a letter to public service commission.

According to KCCA’s employment records, Mr Kitaka is a substantive director of engineering and technical services.

Mr Kitaka was picked on December 20 2018 by the former Kampala minister Beti Kamya as the safe pair of hands to replace Ms. Jennifer Musisi who had resigned the same job.

President Museveni Yoweri on Thursday June pointed out that he is not happy with Uganda’s tax to GDP ratio of 14.3%.

Meanwhile, the president has also appointed Dr. Daniel Okello Ayen, as Director, Public Health and Environment, Ms. Sarah Kanyike, for Director Gender, Community Services and Ms. Grace Akullo, for Director, Human Resources and Administration.
