Former Deputy inspector General of Government (IGG) Mariam Wangadya is set to appear before the Parliamentary Appointments Committee for vetting.

Last month, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni appointed Wangadya to Head Uganda Human Rights Commission. Her appointment follows the sudden death of Medi Kagwa who collapsed in his car near Mulago roundabout in 2019.

She will be vetted tomorrow along with four Board Members. The four Board Members include the former minister of Ethics and Integrity Fr. Simon Lokodo, the former chairman of Citizens Coalition for Electoral Democracy in Uganda (CCEDU) Crispin Kaheru, former Kawempe division Councillor Shifra Lukwago and Atuheire Jacklet.
