4 In his report, the Auditor General cited issues related to pay disparities, lack of a organizational structure and ongoing losses.

6 While the committee conducted its investigation, the executive director was asked to bring her curriculum vitae (CV) and academic qualifications.

7 The committee sought to compare her qualifications with those of the advertised CEO position, which required the ideal candidate to have a bachelor’s degree with honors in any field and postgraduate training in management or any other business-related course.

8 Although Bamuturaki had told the committee that she obtained a degree in Social Work and Social Administration (SWASA) from Makerere University in 1994, she said that she had never obtained her transcripts since then.

9 According to Bamuturaki, she has been to the University three times recently to get her transcript, but the University still hasn’t located him.

10 AUDIO Bamuturaki When she was asked for her Ordinary Level results sheet, she told the committee that she had lost it and that she was in the process of obtaining a new one from the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB).

11 Ella bamuturaki said that she only has a letter and a certificate indicating that she obtained a degree.

12 She said that she has been using her certificate and that for most of her work, she was wanted.

13 Ssenyonyi said there is a possibility that the CEO does not have the qualifications, adding that it could be the cause of the challenges at the airline.

14 “We asked her how she has been getting work and she said that they always look for her.

15 That is true because even for this recruitment process, she spent money to recruit people, but the process stopped and she was given the job,” she said.

16 AUDIO Ssenyonyi Mawokota South MP, Hon. Yusuf Nsibambi said the committee needs to take some time to examine the CVs and qualifications of Uganda Airline managers.

17 He said the committee is not asking the questions in vain, but is intent on ensuring the airline is in good hands.

18 “When the person in charge of the airline comes up with dubious and questionable answers, we worry on behalf of Ugandans as an accountability committee,” he said.

19 The committee also commissioned Bamuturaki to explain why in 2019 she registered a writing poll to change her name from Musiime Jenifer Bamuturaki to Jenifer Arnold Lenkai.

20 She told the committee that she had simply changed her mind and did not complete the process while retaining her name, Jenifer Bamuturaki.

21 Buzaaya County Deputy, Hon. Martin Muzale said that the fact that the CEO of the airline lacks academic documents could be the reason why he wanted to change its name.

22 “For a CEO who runs a big institution like this, makes a lot of money and you say for the last 28 years you don’t have your transcript.

23 Once you pay UNEB, they give you six days to collect the papers, the University is the same.

24 I think we are dealing with a different person and not the CEO of the airline,” Muzale said.

25 AUDIO Muzaale Bamuturaki was also tasked with explaining her relationship with Abbavater, a marketing and public relations firm hired to promote Uganda Airlines.

26 Ssenyonyi questioned the conflict of interest when it emerged that Bamuturaki was associated with Abbavater before joining the airline.

27 She said that she went to the same church community as the owner of the company and that is her only relationship with Abbavater and that she does not own shares.

28 However, the committee said that before joining the airline, Bamuturaki had signed some documents on Abbavater’s behalf.

29 The committee handed Bamuturaki and Bagenda over to Parliament police over their dealings in hiring the PR firm, but also over issues of inconsistency in their statements.
