Museveni Cracks Whip At KCCA, Fires Kitaka As Kisaka Takes Over

By Keefa Nuwahereza

In his bid to fight corruption at the Kampala Capital Authority (KCAA), Museveni on Friday fired the Executive Director Eng. Andrew Kitaka and other senior directors.

The move came shortly after Museveni had announced that he is going to rid the country of all corrupt officers and that after cleaning the rot at URA he was to handle other agencies.

Shortly firing them, the President proposed four candidates to fill vacant positions among them being Dorothy Kisaka, for Executive Director, Eng. David Luyimbazi Ssali- Deputy Executive Director, Ms Sarah Kanyike, Director Gender, Community Services and  Production, Grace Akullo- Director Human Resources and Administration.

We have established however that although the proposed appointees have to first be vetted by the Public Service Committee, Kisaka is likely to sail through as the new KCCA boss, replacing Kitaka, who has been at the helm of the Authority since 2018 when he was appointed by President Museveni, after  the former ED Jennifer Musisi resigned.  

Museveni also declined to confirm James Sserunkuuma as deputy director and instead nominated Eng David Luyimbazi Ssali for the position.

However, Eng. Kitaka and Sserunkuuma will retain their substantive positions as director of Engineering and technical services and revenue collections respectively.

The President also nominated Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago’s deputy, Ms Sarah Kanyike, as director gender, community service and production replacing Ms Irene Mudondo.

On the other hand, Dr Daniel Okello Ayen was confirmed as director public health and environment.

Grace Akullo, moving from the ministry of public service, will be the new director human resource and administration replacing Mr Richard Lule.

However, while commenting about the matter, President Museveni’s spokesperson, Mr Don Wanyama tweeted last night thus; “Media colleagues, on proposed changes at KCCA by Kaguta Museveni, for now we can say they are nominees who have to go through vetting by PSC. To report like it’s a foregone conclusion (and that current office bearers are sacked asap) is not exactly accurate.’
