Godfrey Mutabazi, the last executive director of the UCC, completed his two five-year terms at the head of the institution in 2020. Since then, the interim has been taken over by Irene Kaggwa Ssewankambo.
The Ugandan government is seeking to recruit an executive director for the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC). The latter will be responsible for leading the organization in the creation and execution of a strategic plan, formulation of policies and programs as outlined by the Uganda Communications Act.
Applicants must have a master’s degree in economics, law, finance, management, public administration or any other related field. They must also have 15 years of strategic management, government, regulatory, policy and development experience, as well as five years of experience in senior positions in leading companies.
This announcement comes more than three years after the end of the second mandate of the last executive director of the UCC, Godfrey Mutabazi, in office from 2010 to February 2020. Since then, the interim has been taken over by Irene Kaggwa Ssewankambo. At the start of the week, the latter was not sure if she wanted to apply.
As a reminder, the main mission of the UCC is to regulate the communications sector, which includes telecommunications, broadcasting, radio communications, postal communications, data communications and infrastructure.
