NEW BOARD OF UGANDA’S CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY INAUGURATED

KAMPALA, Uganda's Minister of Works and Transport, Monica Azuba, has inaugurated the new board of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) with a warning to its members that the government will not compromise on integrity and hard work.

Speaking at the inauguration of the new board here Thursday, Azuba also set them some tough targets, including increasing revenues, which currently stand at 199 billion shillings (about55.2 million US dollars), by 20 per cent.

I wish to charge you with the following tasks which I hope you will accomplish over your three-year term. Increase the financial revenues from the current 199 billion shillings by at least 20 per cent, she said.

She also called on the board members to work closely with the CAA management team to ensure that key government projects, including expansion of Entebbe International Airport, construction of Kabaale International Airport in Hoima and the fast-tracking of the establishment of a national carrier, are implemented during their three-year tenure.

The eight-member CAA board will be chaired by Edward Mike Ndawula, who pledged to deliver the demands, especially the revival of a new home-based airline, whose establishment the Cabinet recently approved.
