MPs Threaten To Block KCCA Budget Over Musisi-Lukwago Fights

Law makers sitting on the Parliamentary Committee on Presidential Affairs Tuesday asked Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Executive Director Jennifer Musisi and Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago to resolve their bickering for good or risk not having the Authority’s budget for 2018/19 passed.

The MPs asked the two key figures at city hall to concentrate on developing the city-for their conflicts have affected the City’s growth.

This is after the duo tabled contradicting views on the brutality of KCCA Law Enforcement Officers.

Lukwago denied knowledge of the statement tabled by the Technical team led by Musisi and went on to present his own paper on the subject matter, a decision that didn’t go down well with MPs.

In her presentation, Musisi had defended the Law Enforcement Unit as reported in our earlier story; Musisi Reveals KCCA Law Enforcement Officers’ Untold Secrets.

Lukwago revealed that a one Kituma Musoke was hired as Musisi’s body guard, but later became the head of the Enforcement Unit under unclear circumstances.

He said the powers he has used to wreck havoc both within the city and Unit as a whole was unprecedented.

Jessica Ababiku, Committee Chairperson warned the duo against the continued bickering threatening not to process any Bills or Budget if the two warring sides ever appear with divergent views.

Lukwago also complained on the unfair treatment from MPs whom he accused of ganging up against him whenever he raises matters about Kampala, instead of Legislators trying to investigate his concerns to come up with solutions to issues raised.

He noted that KCCA Court continuing to operate at City Hall yet many people have been tortured in the court, demanding its relocation to another area.
