KAMPALA – Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has asked Kampala minister Beti Kamya to appear before the House next week and explain the massive resignations of technical staff at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
Several senior KCCA staff, including former Executive Director Jennifer Musisi, have stepped down from their positions in recent years, threatening to deride the achievements of the Authority that was formed in 2010.
While raising a matter of national importance on Wednesday, Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze wondered why KCCA staff were leaving yet the Authority is well funded. She wondered whether there is interference by the political wing, explaining that it was the very reason that saw Ms Musisi resign.
Ms Nambooze also asked Parliament to investigate why over 700 staff are employed by KCCA on a four months contract basis, despite the fact that Ministry of Public service has recruited workers to fill the positions in question.
Ms Nambooze says Government should explain the resignations looking at the fact that the Authority seems to be in a crisis.
Speaker Kadaga ordered Minister Kamya to issue a statement on the matter next week without fail.
Ms Musisi’s resignation was followed by several other staff including the KCCA Acting Director of treasury Julius Kabugo. Other KCCA staff who have resigned include the Director of Legal Affairs Charles Ouma, former deputy ED Judith Tukahirwa, Daniel Kyambadde who was director treasury services, and Jennifer Kaggwa the Director Human resource.
The others are Jeremy Ntambi a manager in the Engineering services, Martin Kiiza a manager in charge of drainage, David Seruka the Director Public health and Fred Andema the Director Revenue collection among others.
