THE Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) board of directors, which was in office since August 1997, has been dissolved and a new one named.
Ibrahim Kironde Kabanda has been appointed the new board chairman, replacing Dr. Eric Adriko, who served two terms.
Each term lasts three years. The Adriko-led board had served for six years.
The new members, appointed by finance minister Gerald Ssendaula (left) included Ivan Kyayonka, chairman Shell Uganda who represents the Uganda Manufacturersâ€™ Association, Chris Kassami, secretary to the treasury and tourism ministry permanent secretary Sam Nahamya.
A source said the dissolution follows disagreements in the finance ministry on the proposed renewal of URA commissioner general Annebritt Aslundâ€™s contract, which expires this month.
