Engineer Andrew Kitaka’s Tenure as Acting Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has been extended, SoftPower News has learnt.
In a June 25 letter, the Minister for Kampala and Metropolitan Affairs, Ms Betty Amongi, asked Engineer Kitaka to continue monitoring operations at the authority as public service concludes the process of appointment of the new executive director, Ms Dorothy Kisaka.
“Considering that the office of the executive director is crucial for overall coordination of various directorates, and noting that there exists a gap which should be bridged awaiting completion of appointment of a substantive executive director by the Public Service Commission, I have assigned you duties of the executive director in the interim,” Ms Amongi wrote.
President Museveni recently nominated Ms Kisaka to replace Ms Jennifer Musisi, who resigned on December 20, 2018.
However, Ms Kisaka could not immediately start her duties since she the process to approve her appointment is not yet concluded by Public Service Commission (PSC).
