The 10 year tenure of Mr. Godfrey Mutabazi as the Executive Director of the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has on Friday February 7,2019 come to an end.
The no-nonsense Mutabazi who joined UCC in 2010 has been replaced by Engineer Irene Kaggwa Ssewankambo according to a communication that has been made by the new Minister of ICT, Judith Nabakooba.
It can be recalled that the Board of UCC wrote to the former ICT Minister Frank Tumwebaze in 2019 recommending that his contract is renewed, however, it all went futile.
UCC is the regulatory authority with oversight of broadcasting, postal and telecommunications services in Uganda.
Godfrey Mutabazi is an Aeronautical Engineer by profession and a registered member of the Royal Aeronautical Society of the United Kingdom, an Affiliate of the Institute of Engineers of the United Kingdom. He studied Aeronautical Engineering and Avionics at Perth College, University of Highlands and Islands, Scotland. He holds an MSC in Information and Communications Technologies (Software Engineering) with a bias in Spectrum Planning from the University Of Liverpool, United Kingdom.
He also holds certification in Broadcasting Regulation from the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association and certification in Public Utilities Regulatory Course from the University of Florida / Worldbank.
As an advocate for prioritisation of ICTs in the national development agenda, Mutabazi has successfully promoted the integration of ICTs in other service-oriented sectors such as education, health, security, and governance among others. He has also been very instrumental in promoting ICT innovation in Uganda.
Godfrey Mutabazi has vast experience in both broadcasting and telecommunications and away from ICT; he is a champion for equal opportunities and gender balance.
