Lord Mayor Salongo Erias Lukwago spoken out on working relationship and future of Kampala Capital City Authority following the resignation of former Executive Director Madam Jenifer Ssemakula Musisi.
Musisi in mid December handed over the office to the Kampala minister Beti Kamya following her October resignation having served as city hall boss since 2011.
After as term came to an end, Musisi paid a visit to the Lord Mayor office and bidded farewell to a man they had frosty working relationship for the past seven years.
“Jennifer came to the office to bid farewell, I am a civilized person…you wanted me to box her?” Lukwago said on Wednesday morning while appearing on NBS television when asked how the two ended their past.
He added: “I have never been that vindictive against Jennifer Musisi.”
Lukwago said that he would continue fighting the bad KCCA amendment act in the coming year while carrying out his duties as the lord mayor of Kampala.
“Good thing, the new acting ED is someone who is reasonable,” Lukwago stated.
Following Musisi departure, Engineer Mubiru Kitaka was appointed the acting Executive Director of the KCCA.
“I have worked with him all these years. He has been a true civil servant,” Lukwago described Kitaka who has substantively been the Director Engineering and Technical Services at KCCA since 2011.
Kitaka replaced Dr Judith Tukahirwa as acting deputy executive director in 2016 following her resignation.
Lukwago added: ”Now that I have made this statement, he may even be sacked.”
