Background and education[edit]

Kitaka was born in the Buganda Region of Uganda, in the 1970s. After his primary education, he enrolled into King's College Budo, in Wakiso District, where he completed his O-Level studies. He then transferred to Namilyango College, in Mukono District, where he completed his A-Level education.[3]

Kitaka was admitted to Makerere University, the oldest and largest public university in Uganda, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering. His second degree is a Master of Science in transport and planning, awarded by Delft University of Technology, in Delft, the Netherlands.[3]

Kitaka briefly served at Uganda National Roads Authority, before he was hired by the European Union, where he served as an operations officer in charge of roads infrastructure.[3]

In 2011, at the creation of Kampala Capital City Authority, Kitaka was appointed as the Director of Engineering and Technical Services in the new KCCA, a role he still occupied, as of December 2018.[3]

Kitaka also privately consults for both local and international organisations, including the work done in June 2018 for Huron Consulting Group, of Chicago.[3]
