Directors argued that they are answerable to the minister while councillors blocked them from leaving the meeting room arguing that they are answerable to council and the people of Kampala.
The council meeting was deferred to yesterday, Monday.
Sserunkuma said the relationship between management and authority composed of councillors is symbiotic and the events of last week raise grave consequences if management team continues attending authority meeting without their security assured.
He noted that they would not attend any other council meeting until councillors commit not to engage in any other acts that threaten technocrats’ security and liberty. Sserunkuma further noted that councillors must commit to maintain the decorum of council meeting.
Deputy Lord Mayor Sarah Kanyike who had come to chair the council meeting read the letter to the councillors.
Nakawa I councillor Moses Okwera proposed an informal meeting between councillors and technocrats to resolve the impasse, a proposal that was accepted by councillors. A seven-member committee chaired by Deputy Lord Mayor Sarah Kanyike was appointed to take on the mandate.
But Nakawa II councillor Kennedy Okello argued that engaging technocrats is bending backwards because only councillors constitute the authority as per KCCA Act.
