Kampala: The Engineers Registration Board (ERB) which is established under the Engineers Registration Act (ERA) Cap 271, as a statutory body with a mission to regulate and control engineers and their profession within Uganda, has kicked the former Buganda Kingdom Prime Minister JB Walusimbi among others out of its association over defaulting.
According to the letter signed by the association’s registrar,Eng Ronald Namugera, these Engineers are restricted from pursuing any job in the engineering field in Uganda and should not risk using the title Engineer anymore.
According to our sources from the association, these engineers have been not following rules and regulation of the association that includes paying for a membership and other operational fees something they have allegedly not been fulfilling.
Among the engineers who have since been exposed as serial defaulters include among others Eng.JB Walusimbi, Sidpar Yashwant, Aroon Samani Gokalds, Kubo Akalema Mukwaya, Nsimbe P.
