Jennifer Musisi has been at the helm of KCCA for the last seven years. She has in many ways transformed the city, if nothing else, making the public to get interest in the city. People had given up on Kampala, with very few people getting interested in what is going on. Jennifer may have loved the glamour, but with it, she captured the media interest and with this the media fed in her palms. Any city development needs good media for nothing more than taking the message to the masses. you need the media on your side as a city to make progress. Jennifer managed to bring down the number of scandals that had come to be associated with KCCA. She has in a recent interview said she was never corrupt. We want to believe her because we do not have any evidence to the contrary. She managed to put a team in place. KCCA is moving in the right direction. but it need the right political leadership. Our view is that the minister for Kampala Betty Kamya is misplaced. KCCA needs to be superintended by a council, which is already in place. right now, there is confusion as to who is above the other- the council and the minister. This question needs to be resolved if the new incoming Executive director of KCCA is going to be more effective. When a technical person (ED) is faced with an option of reporting to two entities, they will be bogged down and confused. This drains their energy. The incoming ED Andrew Kitaka is a seasoned technocrat, with hands on experience. some circles say he has been the right hand man of Jennifer. Lets not fail Andrew. Lets give him the resources and environment to perform. Lets not look for his weaknesses. Lets see how we can make him perform better. We look forward to having a great city building on what Jennifer has left in place. We wish you all the best Jenifer in your new placement and welcome Andrew Kitaka.
