Uganda CAA chief ousted over performance issues
The Managing Director of Uganda's Civil Aviation Authority, Wenceslaus Rama Makuza, has been dismissed over alleged performance issues, reports Hillary Muheebwa.
Makuza has been the managing director of the aviation body since 2008.
Before his appointment as managing director, Mr Makuza has served as the deputy managing director, a position he had held since 1991.
“It is true the MD’s contract has been terminated by the appointing authority, who is the Minister of Works and Transport,” Mr Vianney Luggya, CAA’s communications officer confirmed, adding that he has been replaced his deputy by Dr David Kakuba who is in the acting position.
“The Board found his performance was not up to what they desired and for the good of CAA and the entire country his contract was terminated,” Ms Susan Kataike, the public relations officer at Ministry of Works and Transport, confirmed to the press.
