Dorothy Kisaka has now officially been named the new Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Executive Director.
Following a series of interviews, Dorothy Kisaka has now officially been named the new Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Executive Director replacing Jennifer Musisi who resigned from the position back in 2018.
Since her resignation in 2018, the position has been held by Andrew Kitaka who was serving temporarily for close to one year and a half. Kitaka was chosen on December 20, 2018, by the former Kampala minister, Betty Kamya as a perfect successor to Ms Musisi.
However, President Museveni last month nominated Ms Dorothy Kisaka to have her interviewed together with four other members to take up different positions in KCCA and directed the Public Service Commission to interview them to find out whether they are suitable for the positions.
In the wake of events, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has now officially confirmed the appointment of lawyer Dorothy Kisaka as the new Executive Director of KCCA.
This is evident about a letter addressed to the Minister of Public Service Wilson Muruli Mukasa, by the chairman of the Public Service Commission Justice Ralph Ochan.
According to a letter, dated July 21, 2020, Justice Ochan also confirms the appointment of Eng David Luyimbazi Ssali as the new Deputy Director and Grace Akullo as the Director of Human Resource and Management.
