The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) vice chairperson for Eastern region, Capt Mike Mukula has decided to relocate all his aircrafts to Kenya citing frustration by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
He says for three years he has been denied an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) by the authority.
Mukula’s Uganda Aviation School was registered in 2013 and cleared by the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE).
However, for three years, the former Health Minister says, his aircrafts have been grounded and paying parking fees; yet when he applied for the same certificate in Kenya recently, it took him just a month to get all the paper work, and only a week for them to be processed and cleared.
He tweeted, “I have finally taken a decision to relocate all our aircrafts to KENYA having been frustrated by @UgandaCAA to obtain an AOC #kenya issued it in one week >> this equipment has been on the ground for over 3 years *fully maintained and paying parking fees #systemsfailure,”
