Jennifer Musisi resigns as KCCA ED
On Monday evening, the Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Jennifer Ssemakula Musisi called a meeting of KCCA directors and heads of departments.
None of them knew what the meeting was about. Once there, Musisi talked to them about her time at City Hall which was characterised by endless fights.
It was then that she told the city’s technical staff that effective December 15, she will not be their boss because she had decided to resign from the coveted position.
Moments letter, a 21-page letter addressed to President Yoweri Museveni through Beti Olive Namisango Kamya, the Minister of Kampala, and copied to the head of Public Service and Secretary to Cabinet Alex Mitala, the Auditor General John Muwanga and the secretary to the Public Service Commission, Musisi outlined her achievements as KCCA ED over the past seven years but did not give reasons for her resignation.
Sources at City Hall have however told IntelPost that Musisi’s main reason for resigning were the unending fights with the political wing which she said had reached irreconcilable levels.
Musisi has always been at loggerheads with the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago whom she tried to get rid of during his first term as Lord Mayor but failed.
Lukwago instead got overwhelmingly re-elected in 2016, this time with a commanding majority of councillors which tilted the politics at KCCA in Lukwago’s favour.
