The letter which was copied Moses Asaga, was silent over when the move takes effect.
Part of the letter read: “It is my pleasure to inform you that His Excellency, President of the Republic has appointed you caretaker CEO of the NPA. You will act in that capacity until a substantive CEO is approved. As a caretaker CEO you will not take decisions that will have policy implications until a substantive governing board is in place. You may refer such policy related decisions to the Ministry for prior approval”
