The President also appointed Mr Ojok Joel Cox as Vice-Chairperson while Denis Tumusime, Zaidi Ibrahim Edema and Sr. Mary Wasagali have been appointed as members of the commission.
In a letter dated March 23 to Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga, the President forwarded their names and Curriculum Vitae for Parliamentary approval.
Ms Nabatanzi’s contract ran out in December last year at a time she was battling corruption-related charges before the Anti-Corruption Court in Kololo, Kampala.
They include; two counts of conspiracy to defraud the government and corruption.
The prosecution contends that between July 2018 and April 2019 at EOC offices in Kampala, Ms Ntambi being the chairperson of the commission, neglected her duty of directing the affairs and administration of the commission thereby leading to gross mismanagement of the commission funds.
