KCCA assigns Daniel Muhumuza NuweAbine as the interim spokesperson replacing Peter Kaujju.
The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Management has assigned Daniel Muhumuza NuweAbine as the interim spokesperson replacing Peter Kauju who retired from the position last month.
“It’s humbling and my atmost honour to serve the citizens — I believe that with your support, input and engagement, together we’ll continue improving Kampala,” Daniel Muhumuza tweeted earlier following the appointment.
He will also double as the Head of Public and Corporate Affairs for the Kampala City governing body.
Under his new roles, Muhumuza is tasked to drive and oversee KCCA’s communication Policy in the execution of all Institution’s Corporate Communications and Media Relations, stakeholder engagements at various levels and the institution’s brand voice.
Meanwhile, before his new role, Muhumuza has been serving as the Substantive Supervisor for Guidelines and Public Awareness at KCCA for four years.
Under this role, he has provided oversight on community-based awareness and sensitisation with a blend of creativity and strategic thinking to give an account of KCCA services, the status of projects as well as building synergies with communities.
New KCCA Spokesperson
Muhumuza will now serve as the organization’s new voice but temporarily as the search for a permanent spokesperson commences.
He replaces Peter Kaujju who earlier on resigned to take on a new role as the Head of Communications at UMEME. Although his new move had been known since last month, the body in charge of electricity in the country confirmed the news on Tuesday.
“We take this honor to introduce Peter Kaujju as our Head of Communications, stakeholder engagement and partnerships. He is passionate about public relations and we are happy to have him on the team,” a statement from UMEME read.
Mr Kaujju joined KCCA in April 2011 and has worked for the authority nine years. He joined KCCA from Uganda Revenue Authority where he was part of the communication department.
In his letter following resignation, Kaujju expressed his excitement having significantly contributed to the positioning of KCCA.
“It has been a monumental nine years of professional growth and personal development and transformed the city. I am especially delighted to have significantly contributed to the positioning of KCCA as a stakeholder centric, highly recognizable, respectable, and vibrant brand within and outside Uganda,” Kaujju’s letter read.
Adding; “I am glad to have played a pivotal role in planning and advising the management team on matters of communication and public relations as well as spearheading stakeholder engagements for the institution.”
