Bank of Uganda Governor Prof. Emmanuel Tumusime Mutebile has axed Director in charge of supervision Justine Bagyenda and replaced her with Dr.Tumubweine Twinemanzi!
Twinemanzi has been working at Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) as the Director Industry Affairs and Content Economic Affairs.
Mutebile has gone ahead to make some more changes where Mary Katarikawe will now serve as Executive Director Operations while Joyce Okello is now the new Executive Director and Personal Assistant to the Governor while David Kalyango will now serve as the Internal Auditor. Richard Mayebo has been appointed Executive Director Risk and Strategic Management.
Mutebile also released a list of new Directors: Dr Charles ABuka (Statistics), Dr Kenneth Egesa (Financial Stability), Valentine Ojangole (Banking), Olive Kamuli (Medical Administrator), Mackay Aumo (National Payments Systems).
Director in charge of Communications Christine Alupo has been transferred to head the Board Affairs Department. She is being replaced by Charity Mugumya.
Hannington Waswa will take charge of the Commercial Banking Department while Ben Sekabira is the head of Financial Markets Development Coordination. Edward Mugerwa is now the new director IT Operations Department.
Other Executive Directors are Phillip Wabulya (Petroleum Investment Fund), Elliot Mwebya (Information Technology) and Deborah Kabahweza (Finance). Ms. Bagyenda is currently on leave and was supposed to retire in June this year. However the big man from Kabale has not waited for June and ordered Bagyenda to continue grazing her goats as she has been doing during her leave.
Since last year, Bagyenda has been in the middle of controversies and recently the Inspector General of Government was petitioned to investigate her source of wealth which is estimated in millions of dollars by a one Dick Kimeze, a ‘concerned’ Ugandan citizen. Now pundits say, this could have caused her current dilemma.
