Go & Hang, Gov’t Has No Money For Wastage-AG Kiwanuka Responds To Ousted Uganda Airlines Boss About UGX3.5Billion Compensation

By Spy Uganda

Ousted Uganda Airlines CEO Conwell Muleya must be confused on what next after all tricks to retrieve his job are yielding no positive result for him. For months now ever since he was kicked out of office over corruption among other dubious deals, he has been allegedly buying media attention to threaten that he is going to sue the government if it doesn’t compensate him over UGX3.5b for terminating his contract. Funny enough, Muleya has also been trying to force the government that reinstates him as Airlines CEO in exchange for the above mentioned compensation fee.

Story be summarized, no-nonsense Attorney General Kiryowa Kiwanuka has told him off that government will neither pay nor reinstate him as Uganda Airlines Chief Executive Officer…of course it reflects his past deeds at the country’s flag carrier.

Mr Kiwanuka made the revelation while responding to claims by Muleya’s lawyers Muwema and Co. Advocates and Solicitors that the interim board issued him a notice to terminate his contract on February 15, 2022, in disregard of the due process as per the contract he had.

He said Muleya must not threaten the government and think that they will fear and pay or reinstate him yet he is the one who is in the wrong.


“You cannot be in the wrong and threaten to sue us. Let him sue and we shall argue in court,” Kiwanuka blasted Muleya.

Last year, Muleya, Paul Turacayisenga, the director of commercial, Rogers Wamara, procurement manager, Moses Wangalwa, sales and marketing officer Deo Nyanzi, Andrew Tumusiime (senior administration manager), Harvey Kalama (ground operational manager), Bruno Oringi (safety manager), Michael Kaliisa (quality manager), crew training manager Juliet Otage Odur and first officers Kenneth Kiyemba and Alex Kakooza were suspended on the orders of President Yoweri Museveni.

Their suspension was to pave way for the investigation into allegations of financial mismanagement, collusion, and nepotism in staff recruitment among other issues. However, after nine months of suspension, Muleya’s contract was terminated. Museveni also directed the disbandment of the Pereza Ahabwe-led board of directors. As a result, an interim board of directors chaired by Works ministry permanent secretary Waiswa Bageya was put in place to oversee the airline.

After investigations, and disciplinary proceedings against him and other suspended staff, the interim board took the decision to terminate Muleya’s contract among other board members.
