The Future is Female:Jenifer Bamuturaki Appointed Substantive Uganda Airlines Boss

By Our Reporter

Ms. Jenifer Bamuturaki has been confirmed as the substantive Chief Executive Officer of Ugandan Airlines.

The approval is contained in a July 5 letter written by works and transport minister, Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala, to the chairperson of the Uganda Airlines Board.

In the letter, Gen Wamala indicates that the directive to appoint Bamuturaki came from President Yoweri Museveni.

“Reference is made to letter Ref. No. P0/28 dated 24th, April, 2022 from H.E. the President of the Republic of Uganda in respect of the subject matter above (copy attached for ease of reference). The purpose of this letter is to bring the directive to your attention for implementation,” the letter reads in part.

Bamuturaki replaces Cornwell Muleya who was sacked in February 2022 after being suspended in May 2021 alongside other officials over allegations of mismanagement at the national carrier.

On June 24, 2022, the airline advertised the CEO position just three days after former CEO Cornwell Muleya was charged by the Inspectorate of Government for disobeying the Inspectorate’s orders.

Bamuturaki is a sales and marketing manager with over 10 years of experience in both the Aviation, Travel and Hospitality. She has worked with start-up airlines and hotels, carried out route research and development, recruitment’s, budgets, strategic planning, route launches, marketing and advertising campaigns for product launches.

Until recently, she led the Commercial Department for Uganda Airlines, focusing on regional routes.

She holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and Management from Makerere University and a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work and Social Administration, also from Makerere University.
