Bigririmana, who was permanent secretary, ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development handed to James Ebitu at the weekend. He replaces Kagole Kivumbi who was sacked for failure to account for funds allocated to Judiciary.
While handing over the office during weekend, Bigirimana said he was the man to fix problems
“I can assure you that, I am always prepared. I am not new in this service and as I told you before I have a balanced mentality, I have positive mind,” he said.
“People have been trafficking themselves a number of times and then others have been trafficked unscrupulously by businessmen and women,” he noted.
He said mechanisms have been put in place to combat abuse of labour.
Ebitu, the acting permanent secretary ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development noted that he is ready to take on the task assigned to him.
“I take this position technically and mentally prepared. I came to this position with confidence in my heart because you have taken trouble to mentor me and expose me during the time we have been together,” he said.
