Dr Violet Kajubiri-Floelich, a sister to President Museveni, was last week appointed deputy chairperson of the Education Service Commission (ESC).
The appointment was made by the president. She took her oath of office on July 20.
Dr Kajubiri served on the commission as a member for eight years.
Kajubiri said she has garnered enough experience that should come in handy in her role.
“I’m now a better person and that’s why the appointing authority (President Museveni) has put trust in me,” Kajubiri said.
She said the commission’s limited budget is one of their major challenges.
“We have limited resources yet there is a lot of pressure because of the job competition,” she added.
The commission is expected to recruit teachers and administrators to improve service delivery in the education.
The eight-member Commission is chaired by Haj Lubega Wagwa. Others include Dr Asuman Lukwago (secretary), James Kubeketerya and Hajj Abdulatif Wangubo.
