The Board of Directors of Uganda Printing and Publishing Corporation (UPPC) has appointed Prof Sudi Nangoli on a renewable three-year contract as the corporation’s new Managing Director, replacing Mr. Kenneth Oluka, who held the position in an acting capacity for nearly two years following the discordant exit of former MD Prof. Tom Wasswa.

While handing over the office yesterday, Mr. Oluka thanked the appointing authority for having given him the opportunity to lead the institution for one year and seven months but decried the issue of old machinery, which UPPC has grappled with for so many years.

“In order to be competitive, we need to acquire a five-colour machine because that’s where the world of printing is, but for us, we are still lagging behind. So we need to get modern machinery if we are to compete favourably in this market of printing and publishing,” he said.
