The Uganda Tourist Board has appointed Mr. Cuthbert Baguma as the new Manager Director replacing James Bahinguza, who has retired from UTB after several terms of office.
Cuthbert has previously served in the Ministry of Tourism, Trade, and Industry as assistant commissioner in charge of licensing, in which capacity he also served as board member at the National Hotel and Tourism Training Institute for several years, where he marketed himself as calm and collected individual, knowledgeable and competent in everything he did.
His appointment comes at a time when the industry is struggling to obtain more support from government for the funding of the tourism board, which in the absence of implementing the provisions of the new Tourism Act about the introduction of a levy will remain a major challenge.
The Tourism Industry of Uganda is one of the Government’s Source of Income and It is growing day by day.
