KAMPALA- Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has Wednesday announced its resolution to cancel this year’s city street festival to channel resources on improving health and city schools.

Speaking at a press conference at the City Authority’s headquarters in Kampala, Ms Jennifer Musisi, the executive director KCCA revealed that together with their partners, they are now considering to invest in cooperate social responsibilities and to raise education standards in the city schools.

“We shall not have a street party this year but [we shall] focus all our sponsors’ contributions to the CSR [Cooperate Social Responsibilities] cause to improve our health centers and removing asbestos from our city schools,” Musisi said.

She explained that KCCA authorities have agreed to focus the contributions of their partners on implementing projects to improve schools and health centers.

“We shall start with re-roofing of Nakibubo blue and Nakivubo settlement primary schools and also, build a maternity ward at Kiswa health center,” KCCA’s executive director revealed.

KCCA city festival is one of the biggest street parties in East Africa and a highly anticipated moment for revelers to share, learn and network while acting as an economic engine for companies, organisations and small businesses to flourish.

Kampala City Festival started seven years ago and on average hosts about 5 million people from within and outside the region according to executive director Musisi.
