Well, never ask a hungry goat as to why it’s running away from a greeny, ’fertile’ forest good enough for its source of food, probably what could be in the forest is more dangerous than meets the eye. Everybody wants a good job, but when you see staff running away from dfcu Bank at the speed of world’s fastest sprinter Usain Bolt, your question must be ‘what’s the matter’? well, your answer is as good as mine.
TheSpy Uganda has it on good authority that the latest in such the frey is now its former staff Agnes Tibayeyita Isharaza who has been the bank’s chief legal officer and company secretary. Yes, It’s hard to believe but it’s true!
Info.reaching our desk indicates that Isharaza threw in the towel few days ago and has officially joined National Social Security Fund (NSSF) as head of legal services and corporation secretary, replacing Mr Richard Wejuli Wabwire, who was appointed High Court Judge in Feb 2019.
Ms Isharaza was days ago appointed to that position by the Minister of Finance Matia Kasaija who supervises NSSF.
However, sources say Isharaza joined NSSF, having disagreed with the board of Dfcu Bank and Jimmy Mugerwa over certain business decisions but particularly her refusal to be used to drag journalists to police over what he termed as bad publicity in the BoU/Crane Bank sale saga.
Her departure from Dfcu Bank is just one of the several other exits by staff that has been happening for a while, a source said.
Who is Isharaza?
Ms Agnes Tibayeyita Sharaza holds a Bachelor’s Laws from Makerere University, a post graduate Diploma, Legal practice from Law Development Centre (LDC) and an Executive MBA from Eastern and Southern African Management Institute (Esami).
She has 16 years of experience and has previously served as a board member on the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) from 2011-2017, where she represented Uganda Bankers Association.
She has also served as the chairperson of the legal and regulatory affairs committee of Uganda Bankers’ Association.
In 2017, Ms ISharaza was nominated for the Women in Law Awards, Best Female Corporate Lawyer (Corporations) category, emerging the second runner up.
