Byarugaba’s immediate challenge will be defining his relationship with the finance minister and the NSSF board.
Byarugaba’s appointment was announced on October 29 by Finance Minister Maria Kiwanuka, two months after President Yoweri Museveni asked her to offer him the job given his track record at the Fund.
Byarugaba said he was conscious of the complexities facing his new term but felt he had no choice but to accept the offer.
