The Uganda Airlines CEO has been reportedly fired. According to sources, the top hierarchy of the newly re-established Uganda Airlines including the CEO, Cornwell Muleya have been sent packing.
This was after a dramatic intervention by the Minister of Works and Transport Minister Gen. Katumba Wamala, on orders from State House.
State owned media in Kampala has today reported that up to ten of Uganda Airlines top management including the CEO, financial director, head of safety and human resource director have gone on three months leave.
Some exlusive stories say that the the move is due to allegations of corruption, mismanagement and poor performance within the state-owned entity. Their departure for leave will allow for a full investigation into the matter.
A new acting CEO, Captain Steven Wegoye has been appointed to oversee a transition.
