Reports reaching info256 indicates that former Kampala Capital City Authority Executive Director has got a juicy appointment days after resigning from city hall.
It is said Jennifer Musisi has joined Harvard University as the first City Leader in Residence of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative.
Jennifer will play a key role in advising on the design of Bloomberg Harvard programming, with a particular emphasis on programming for cities outside of the United States. She will serve as a resource for faculty,
students, staff, and participating mayors and other city leaders, and will share insight and information on innovations, solutions, and approaches to common problems across cities. We also look forward to her contributing experience and knowledge to our Initiative’s
production of content regarding city leadership.
“Jennifer is a transformational leader with three decades of experience in turning around government institutions and systems in challenging settings,” Jorrit De Jong, a Lecturer in Public Policy and Management
Faculty Director Bloomberg Harvard City said.
He added “Most recently, she was appointed by the president of Uganda to
serve as the first executive director of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda (a role comparable to mayor, chief executive or city manager). In this capacity, she earned a global reputation for strong urban governance, organizational leadership, innovation, and building service delivery systems in institutions grappling with crippling corruption, limited financing and systemic dysfunction. She also entered partnerships and mobilized significant funding to advance the city. Jennifer previously served as commissioner of legal services and board affairs at the Uganda Revenue Authority and as legal advisor to Makerere University.”
