Kampala Capital City Authority(KCCA) Executive Director Jennifer Musisi has resigned, the Nile Post has learnt.
In an October 15 letter to President Museveni, Musisi says issues like low funding to the authority, lack of staff motivation and friction between the KCCA political and technical wings have forced her to resign.
“One of the main challenges has been to reconcile the competing interests between political perspectives / decisions and the strategic plans, policies, regulations and work plans of the KCCA Technical Team. Consequently, it has increasingly become difficult to achieve set targets,”Musisi said in her letter through the Minister for Kampala.
According to Musisi, there is inadequate political support to the efforts of the KCCA Technical Team to transform the city a thing she says has stalled development.
“Many planned City improvement plans have not received political support and therefore not been implemented.”
In the letter she told the president that KCCA was unable to meet both government and public expectations due to inadequate funding, a thing she says cannot allow her continue as KCCA Executive Director.
“This is to submit my resignation the position of Executive Director Kampala Capital City Authority with effect from 15 December 2018,”she adds.
Jennifer Musisi was the first Executive Director since the creation of Kampala Capital City Authority in 2011 from Kampala City Council.
