Nambooze Asks New KCCA ED to Depoliticize the Authority, Tips Her on ‘Proper’ Administration

Published

on


Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Hon Betty Nambooze Bakireke has requested the newly confirmed Executive Director of the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Dorothy Kisaka to start with depoliticizing the Authority, in her first assignments at office.

Dorothy took an oath as the new ED of KCCA on Thursday this week at KCCA headquarters in Kampala.

She replaced Andrew Kitaka who had worked as an Acting ED KCCA for two years following the resignation of Jenifer Musisi in December 2018.

In her congratulatory message, Nambooze said, “In our opinion, we think that your first assignment should be to depoliticize the KCCA technical wing. Further to recommend that you protect yourself and the entire KCCA staff against politically motivated actions of the Kampala Ministers,” she said.

Nambooze reminded Dorothy that as a civil servant, she is required to carry out only lawful orders and instructions.

“If you do this, you will never land into scandals and matters that book you a place at Luzira or make you profusely sweat before MPs sitting on the Public Accounts Committee (PAC),” she noted.

“We wish to remind you that the old KCCA law was amended to offer clarity on the position of the Lord Mayor, Division Mayors and Councilors as the political leaders of the City,” Nambooze added.

Nambooze also advised Kisaka to keep in mind that her role is to implement the resolutions of the Authority, “you are not and should not at all times appear like a political leader. Madam ED if you or any of the Officers under your leadership wish to exercise political power, this is the right time for that person to retire and go stand for elections.”

Reflecting on what she termed as persecution of the poor by the old KCCA leadership, Nambooze told Dorothy that the urban poor are not a nuisance and that they don’t have a calculated agenda to be agents of menace, whose mission is to cause inconvenience or annoyance but they are also Ugandans who have a right to earn an honest living and be accorded space in their Country’s Capital City.

“Another challenge you will deal with is corruption, abuse of office, and outright theft of public funds and resources. We pray that you don’t leave KCCA unceremoniously like predecessors, for you deserve better,” she concluded.

Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Published

on

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.

However, sources further reveal that Byabashaija could have courted the second lady for protection given that he has amassed a lot of wealth and could be a subject of investigations.

Our sources reveal that Byabashaija who carries himself as Mr.I know it all hasn’t met Madam Enid alone but a host of others with connections to the centre of power in the country.
