President Museveni has written to the Public Service Commission (PSU) nominating Dorothy Kisaka as the new Kampala Capital City Authority executive director.

If vetted and cleared by the Public Service Commission, Kisaka will replace Andrew Kitaka the current acting KCCA director whose contract extension expires next week on June 18.

In his letter to the Public Service Commission, Museveni also nominated Eng David Luyimbazi Ssali as deputy executive director, Dr Daniel Okello Ayen as director public health and environment, Sarah Kanyike as director gender, community services and production and Grace Akullo as human resource and administration.

Museveni asked Public Service Commission to interview them and find out if they are suitable for the KCCA positions.

Kisaka is a lawyer and currently working as a senior advisor on governance in the Office of the Prime Minister. She was recently appointed as Covid-19 fund administrator under OPM.

Kitaka’s contract was extended in December 2019 for a further six months and has been acting KCCA executive director since December 2018 after being appointed by then Kampala minister Beti Kamya following the resignation of Jennifer Musisi.

Before being appointed ED, Kitaka previously acted as deputy executive director when Dr Judith Tukahirwa resigned from the post in 2016.

During his post-budget speech this week, President Museveni said he has “cleaned” Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) of corrupt officials and warned that he will soon do the same in other government entities.

Museveni said the five nominees were headhunted because of their integrity.
