Museveni fires NIRA ED over incompetence

Must read

President Museveni has ordered Gen Jeje Odong, the Internal Affairs Minister, not to renew the contract of Ms Judy Obitre-Gama as the Executive Director of the National Information Registration Authority (NIRA) citing “problems at the authority related to the issuance of National IDs”

In an May 18, 2020 letter, Mr Museveni wrote that a new Executive Director preferably with a legal or information technology background should be identified.

“I am therefore directing you to work with the Board of Directors of NIRA and identify a suitable candidate. Consult me before a final decision is made on the matter,” Mr Museveni wrote.
The letter was copied to Dr Joseph Biribonwa, the NIRA Board Chairman.

Ms Obitre-Gama’s job has been long on the line after Gen Odong publicly criticised the agency in February this year over the late issuance of National IDs.

“If I apply for an ID, how long should I take before I receive it? I would like to encourage you to focus your mind on the improvement of the business processes in order to improve the turn around,”Gen Odong said then.
