Uganda Civil Aviation Authority ED Kakuba to Quit

Outgoing Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) boss, Dr David Kakuba, has been directed to provide a detailed handover report on any pending audit queries and progress of infrastructure projects under his docket before the expiry of his contract on June 30.

Kakuba recently wrote to Works Minister Gen Edward Katumba Wamala about the end of his contract.

However, Katumba’s junior Minister, Joy Kabatsi said in a letter to Kakuba that the outgoing UCAA boss must provide a detailed report.

“Taking into account the remaining time of your contract and to enable a smooth and orderly continuity of the activities of the authority and in accordance with provision no.12 of the terms and conditions of service therein, you are required to submit … a comprehensive handover showing the level of implementation of activities on detail beyond what you stated in your end of term report,” said Kabatsi.

The State Minister said the report must have “guidance on handling and conclusion of audit issues of ICAO including certification of Entebbe International Airport on one hand and as well as Financial Audits by the Auditor General and any other that may be outstanding.”

Kabatsi also asked for a “special report on the progress of the larger number of UCAA projects showing their level of implementation and funding.”
