UNRA ED; Allen Catherine Kagina
Before Ms Allen Kagina took over, UNRA was engulfed in corruption scandals which have seen billions of tax payers money swindled.
The move forced President Yoweri Museveni to set up a commission of inquiry to investigate corruption at UNRA headed by Justice Catherine Bamugemeire. Allen Kagina is set to confirm Ssali’s appointment officially very soon.
