Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has dispelled rumours that President Museveni ordered for the sacking of their board members and other staff.
The Authority through Public Affairs office headed by Vianney Luggya insist that the public should treat as baseless rumour the alleged directive from Museveni.
“We have noted with concern unfounded social media allegations insinuating that the CAA Board and Management have been sacked. We would like to inform the general public that what is circulating on social media is not true. CAA is committed to delivering its statutory mandate and there have been no changes as alleged. We shall continue to ethically promote a safe, secure and affordable air transport system,” the statement reads in part.
“The public is urged to ignore the rumours. CAA operations have not been disrupted in any way,” the statement continues.
Social media has been beaming with the reports that the board was ordered sacked by Museveni. In one of the reports by a one Jeanette Mugisha, she quoted that the president said he was tired of thieves hence directed a cleanup of CAA.
Senior Presidential Press Secretary, Don Wanyama also affirmed, he has not yet seen such a directive from Museveni.
“I have not received a verification yet,” Wanyama said.
CAA has been in the bad books for a number of issues ranging from corruption, to poor service delivery.
