The Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB) has announced the appointment of Alex Anganya as the acting Deputy Registrar General-Finance & Administration (DRG-F&A).
Anganya will assume duty on 11th October, 2021 reporting to the Registrar General & the Board of Directors.
Anganya will support the functions of the Registrar General, Mercy K. Kainobwisho. He will also provide management support to all directorates at URSB.
URSB has been without a substantive Deputy Registrar General after the passing of Alfred Mugisha in July 2021 and the exit of Jane Langoya in January 2021.
“I am very pleased that we have filled this key executive position from our own ranks, which underlines the strength of our organization. The complementary sets of skills that Alex brings to the table provides robust leadership needed to propel us forward. He also has decades of experience both in finance and administration, which makes him the perfect match for this role,” the Registrar General said.
The Board Chairman, Ambassador Francis Butagira said the organisation’s structure was being aligned to deliver the mandate at full capacity and that appointments to fill vacant positions are still on-going.
“Anganya is a dedicated and inclusive leader who has shown strong leadership over the past couple of years in his role as Director Internal Audit. I am confident that in his new role as Deputy RG, he will continue to add even more value to setting and executing our strategy, which will contribute to helping URSB achieve its financial and strategic goals.”
Alex Anganya said, ‘I am greatly honored to be appointed as the Deputy Registrar General of the Bureau. I look forward to working with the fantastic team at URSB and progressively build on the gains made to propel our organization to the next level. I also thank the board and management for believing in me’.
