Many Ugandans might not know about this lady who was running the URA (Uganda Revenue Authority) till her appointment this week.  Her CV is solid and some Ugandans do not get to know about the people who are in charge of the Big Money. The information below is on Wikipedia where any of us can edit, add and contribute.  Her profile on Wiki is in need of more information.  Please consider becoming a Wiki Editor and Contributor.  I am a long time Wiki Contributor.  The world will not know about your people if you do not supply the information about them.  This is a small Bio of her.  I could have gone trolling her all over the Internet to get all her information but feel that if we can edit her Bio on Wiki, it is a free encyclopedia and only fair as it is independent of any influence.  I have watched far too many Ugandans go on International Forums and claim that women are weaker than men or women do not have the brains like men.  Guess what, the speaker of the house is a woman and now the UNRA is a woman and you read what I post and share, omg, I am a woman.  Winnie is in charge of Oxfam and she is a woman... etc.. etc.. etc..  Thank you.
