Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA), Executive Director, Allen Kagina, has practically turned the authority offices into a “prayer centre”.
Kagina is famed for riding Uganda Revenue Authority [URA] of corruption scandals and cleaning all the rot that had stagnated tax collection.
According to inside information, Kagina who is bent on working miracles at the roads authority, has now introduced regular prayer sessions so God can touch officials’ hearts.
A born-again Christian, Kagina says she would be nothing without God.
Kagina says her position is a God-given assignment and will use it to turn around the roads sector.
She was addressing scholars, academia and the private sector in an educative dialogue organised at Uganda Christian University, Mukono through her paper titled, “Reforming public sector organisation; experiences from URA and UNRA” on Friday.
She pledged to change the state of roads in the country and to build human resource capacity as a way of ensuring continuity and improved performance in the sector.
She said UNRA is to be turned into a performance-based organisation where people will be paid for their services.
She revealed that government plans to form its own road construction unit as a means to reduce work done by international companies which are expensive.
To achieve efficiency, Kagina has asked government institution heads and people in public offices to move God into their offices.
