The ascendancy of Dr. E.A. Mukisira to the position of Director KARl culminates an illustrious research career of a truly industrious scientist. This appointment also confirms that the Government and the Ministry of Agriculture in particular have the confidence in the capacity of KARl scientists to manage the affairs of the institute. We congratulate Dr. Mukisira on this prestigious appointment and wish him all the best as we pledge our support to him as he steers KARl to greater heights. The indefatigable Director was on board as the Muguga research complex played host to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation co-founder, Mrs. Melinda Gates. Mrs. Gates visited KARl to ascertain that their foundation's support for research on improved food crops that enhance food security was well utilised. Earlier on, the Director in the company of the Finance and Administration manager of the KARIIUSAID Programs, Ms. Jayne Gathii accompanied USAID officials from Washington on a visit to the Muranga Women Nutribusiness Factory to review the progress made in the project.
