The East Africa civil aviation Safety and Security Oversight Agency is striving to replace its troubled equal contribution funding mechanism with a new 'equitable' one based on aviation activities in each member state.

 

In mid-December last year, the agency's top management held stakeholders' sensitization meetings in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam on the new proposed funding mechanism to persuade the two leading aviation powers which are opposed to the change-- Kenya and Tanzania--to soften their stance and embrace the new mechanism.

 

The agency's Executive Director, Mr Mtesigwa Maugo told The Citizen recently that since its introduction, the system that requires each member state to make equal contribution to support the agency's activities has been a bone of contention with countries with a less vibrant aviation industry like Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi lamenting and calling for a fairer mechanism.
