Uganda’s Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) has appointed Ziria Tibalwa Waako as acting chief executive, replacing Benon Mutambi, who was named last year as permanent secretary in the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Waako, who joined ERA as director technical regulation in 2012, will head the ERA secretariat for six months or until the position is filled. Senior ERA staff had been keen to see a successor appointed from within the body to ensure continuity. Waako studied electrical engineering at Makerere University and worked at Uganda Electricity Transmission Company before joining ERA
