Manzi Tumubweine, the long serving National Gaming Board chairperson has been kicked out for unknown reasons.

According to sources at Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development refused to renew his contract for among others overstaying and allegedly causing intrigue at the board.

Tumubweine has been replaced by Alosyous Mugasa – Managing Director Kolping society Uganda.

Tumubweine, a former State Minister, is remembered for having fought Edgar Agaba, the Executive Director for implementing structures as the NGB had gained ground.

Mr Agaba who joined NGB in 2017 registered revenue collection from Shs1.5 billion two years ago to the current Shs50 billion.

Tumubweine, according to a whistleblower, had forgotten his role of being NGB Chairman and instead wanted to play the role of the executive director, to the extent that he falsely accused Agaba of corruption
