Renowned Kampala economist Dr. Edward Ddamulira Ssengonzi is literally smiling from ear after he was appointed to one of the top offices at the Ministry of Finance.
This website has learnt that Ddamulira is in jubilation mood following his appointment as the Under Secretary Accounting Officer for the Ministry of Finance, Planning, and Economic Development.
Ddamulira comes in to replace Betty Kasimbazi, who retired last month after serving in that capacity for many years.
Prior to her retirement, Kasimbazi had had a tough experience with parliament committees of finance and Public Accounts Committee after she on several occasions had snags in explaining questionable expenditures within the ministry.
Before his new appointment, Dr. Ddamulira had been working as Principal Assistant Secretary at the finance ministry since December 2017.
With a PHD in economics, a Master’s Degree in Economic Policy and Planning and a bachelor’s degree in Quantities Economics, Dr. Ddamulira is academically well equipped to make a big difference in the Ministry, where he has been serving for a long time.
