President Museveni has given Kampala Capital City Authority’s (KCCA) acting executive director, Andrew Mubiru Kitaka, more six months as he prepares to appoint a substantive executive director.
This is according to a letter by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Public Service, Catherine Bitarakwate Musingwiire, dated January 10, 2020.
“…I am pleased to inform you that his excellency the President has, in exercise of the powers vested in him under Article 172 (1) (a) of the Constitution of Uganda directed that your appointment as KCCA executive director scale KCCA1 be extended for a period of six months with effect from December 18, 2019 to June18 2020,” Bitarakwate wrote.
She said in the event that a substantive executive director of KCCA is appointed before the expiry of the six months, the appointment shall automatically lapse.
Kiataka will receive an acting allowance representing the difference between the salary attached to the post he is appointed to act and his substantive salary.
Kitaka, also the substantive director of engineering and technical services, was appointed on December 20, 2018 after Jennifer Musisi resigned the same job.
