The committee of Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE) chaired by Hon Joel Ssenyonyi the Nakawa West MP today squeezed the Civil Aviation Authority led by its Director Dr Fred Bamwesigye.

The Committee discovered that an Engineering Surveyor contracted by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) was born in 1990 but according to records became a Surveyor in 2003 at 13yrs something that left many members shaking their heads as to how this can even be possible.

It was also discovered that the CAA new Director General Fred Bamwesigye has age discrepancies in his documents. The age requirement for his job is 35-55yrs. The wise man amended his age downwards by 4 years, making him 54 yrs today instead of 58 yrs which is on some of his documents.

Asked how this came to happen, he told the Committee that he changed the date of birth because he has since discovered his true age unlike before when his parents never really knew his actual date of birth.

The committee also queried the extra 2.1 billion that was paid to contractor after doing nothing. The CAA officials defended themselves saying that they need more time to try and look into the matter to see how the money went to the contractor’s account.
