KAMPALA: The Civil Aviation Authority of Uganda (CCA) has reportedly fired the embattled Human resource and administration director Ms. Effrance Musimenta Mbagaya for allegedly defacing Museveni’s campaign posters.
The said posters had been pinned on the corporation’s building and offices in Entebbe.
It should be noted that the decision to fire Musimenta comes as court awaits to hear her case on charges of defacement of notices and posters contrary to section 78 of the presidential elections Act 2005.
Meanwhile, the UCCA has today advertised the job for Human Resource director currently held by Musimenta.
Prosecution alleges that on December 16, 2020 when Mbagaya appeared in court for extension of her bail, State prosecutor Joan Keko told court: “We now have the consent of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to prosecute this case. We have since sought different consents and jointly have the charge sheet that is consented to by the DPP to proceed with the case.”
In a phone interview with our reporter, Human rights lawyer Eron Kiiza says her dismissal from the post is constitutionally wrong and politically motivated.
