Kampala district divisions MPs have are said to be divided over KCCA matters with one faction supporting the Lord Mayor ,Erias Lukwago and another on the side of the Executive Director Jennifer Musisi.
The rift between the Kampala district division MPs was revealed today when they appeared before the Local Government and Public Service committee to give their views on the petition which was tabled at the floor of parliament last year by Hon Betty Nambooze about the mismanagement of funds in KCCA by the executive director Jennifer Musisi.
The MPs on the side of Mayor Lukwago accuse Musisi of personalizing and mismanaging KCCA.Some of these MPs include;Rubaga north MP Moses Kasibante,Kawempe North MP Latif Sseggala and Kawempe South MP Ssebuliba Mutumba.
“The confusions in the KCCA are not squarely about the law. Some provisions in KCCA Act are very clear on how the city will be run. The Act also clearly states the Role of the mayor and the executive director in a simple language but madam Jennifer has persisted with her personal wars which has stopped Kampala residents from getting services” Said Hon Latif Ssebaggala
Hon Ssebaggala condemned the KCCA boss of consistently demolishing people’s buildings in the city and evicting venders from the streets without issuing any warning to them.
Mean while Rubaga north MP Moses Kasibante urged police and IGG to open investigations about the fraud in KCCA.
Meanwhile Makindye East MP John Ssimbwa together with Kampala district woman MP Nabilah Ssempala have accused the Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago for failing the developments in KCCA.
“Kampala residents are not getting services due to fight between the mayor and executive director which has been brought by the conduct of the lord mayor. The mayor has also failed to convince councilors and solve the problems in KCCA”Said Ssimbwa
Meanwhile Kampala district woman MP Nabirah Ssempala accused the Lord Mayor of failing to utilise all the area MPs to develop Kampala.
“The lord mayor has not at all effectively utilized the area MPs.The poor management style of the lord mayor has failed all the developments within KCCA.Mr Lukwago should style up if KCCA is to develop” Said Nabilah
