The Central Bank executive has written to the Director of Communications, Charity Mugumya expressing distress on her failure to rapidly and effectively manage a communications crisis that hit the institution in the recent past.
As a result, she has shifted her anger to her junior Slyvia Juuko (head of media relations) cautioning her that she risks being sacked.
As a procedure in the Central Bank, every staff is allowed to respond should he/she receive caution from senior administrator.
However, Ms. Charity has since concealed the letter after learning that the media reported about her actions against her juniors.
www.mknewslink.com has since established that Charity Mugumya is perceived by many top officials as very unfit for the job.
In a report titled “Report of the Presidential Tripartite Committee
Investigation of Allegations surrounding a Decision taken by the Governor of Bank of Uganda on 7th February 2018” the investigator led by Hon. Abdul Katuntu reported that Charity Mugumya wasn’t well conversant with the field (communications) she had been transferred to.
Initially Charity Mugumya worked in the Information Technology department of the bank.
www.mknewslink.com quotes what the report said about Charity Mugumya.
“To that extent the example was given of one senior staff whose core experience and training lies in the IT field and yet they ended up being transferred to handle Corporate Affairs in the Bank.”
This website has learnt that many officials complain of the way Charity executes her duties.
“She doesn’t understand how the media world operates,” said an official in BoU who requested not to be mentioned.
In fact, BoU management wonders why Ms. Charity would reprimand Slyvia Juuko who has never had any issues at work in her entire career at Central Bank.
Senior Presidential Advisor on media relations John Nagenda in his weekly commentary last week wondered how Ms. Charity had got a job at BoU following her uncoordinated comments in the media in regard to the currency printing saga.
