Former Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) executive director, Dr. Andrew Seguya, has been shortlisted for a top job at Uganda Tourism Board [UTB].
The Public Service Commission will be holding oral interviews with successful applicants for the post of Chief Executive Officer at Uganda Tourism Board.
According to Dr. John Geoffrey Mbabazi, the Secretary Public Service Commission, the interviews will be held in Board “A” Farmers’ House, 2nd Floor, Parliament Avenue in Kampala.
The interviews are scheduled for December 18 at 9:00 a.m.
The three candidates vying for UTB CEO Position are; Seguya Andrew Ggunga, Ajarova Lilly and Ochieng Bradford Robbster.
Seguya who is vying for the top job was replaced as UWA ED by Sam Mwandha, a long-time career conservationist.
