Former EC Chairman Badru Kiggundu appointed to head NWSC Board of Director

Former Electoral Commission Chairperson Engineer Badru Kiggundu is new Chairperson Board of Directors, National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), replacing Dr Eng Christopher Ebal.


Cabinet sitting on Monday resolved to appoint Eng Kiggundu as chairperson of the Board. Meanwhile, former East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Speaker Dan Kidega was appointed member of the same board.


The development was confirmed by State Minister for Information Communication Technology (ICT) Peter Ogwang on Friday.


Kigggundu now leaves his other job as chairperson supervision of the Isimba Hydropower project, a position he has held since leaving the Electoral Commission where he served as chairperson for 14 years.


Cabinet has also approved the Electricity Amendment Bill 2020 that seeks to, among others, provide for additional functions of Electricity Regulatory Authority, to increase funds allocated to the authority from 0.3 per cent to 0.7 per cent of the revenue received from generated electrical energy.
