ABUJA, Nigeria – Kampala Capital City Authority Executive Director Jennifer Ssemakula Musisi has won a top African leadership award in recognition of her efforts in turning Kampala around.
Ms Musisi was Saturday night awarded the honour of “Africa Agent of Change” at The Women Development Centre, Abuja – Nigeria for demonstrating exemplary selfless services and projecting good leadership qualities on the continent and beyond.
The African Woman in Leadership Award was also bestowed upon the URA Commissioner General, Doris Akol.
Ms Akol won the Public Service Excellence Award in Africa Award by the African Leadership Magazine which also saw her inducted into the CEOs Hall of Fame 2018 this February 2018.
Ms Musisi, appointed as KCCA Executive Director seven years ago had worked tirelessly to see the City changing, improving and beginning to climb out of its challenging history.
Service delivery and confidence in the city administration have been strengthened with major infrastructure projects and social services restored with some distinctive work ethic amid political challenges as Kampala’s elected political leadership, heavily opposition-leaning, continues to pull ropes with the central government leadership.
