Henry Mayeku has been appointed as the chief executive of the Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club (URA FC).
"URA FC is pleased to announce the appointment of Henry Mayeku as the new club CEO," the club announced in a news release.
"The URA FC interview panel that sat on the 31st August 2020 appointed Henry Mayeku as the new Chief Executive Officer of the Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club."
From 2011 to 2016, Mayeku served as URA FC's secretary-general, after which he was appointed a finance officer.
The current post was scored after what URA termed as a "rigorous recruitment process" and he got a one-year renewable contract, starting September 1.
Henry Mayeka, who beat over forty applicants, including the acting chief executive Bridget Nakayenga -- says he got what it takes to take the taxman funded club to the top.
"URA FC is a club everyone would dream to work with. I am so happy to come back and associate with a place I call home. I promise to bring professionalism, experience, and interpersonal skills which I believe will take back URA FC to the top where it's supposed to be," Henry Mayeku said after receiving the news of his appointment.
