Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) councillors led by the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago have expressed disappointment towards the Kampala Resident City Commissioner (RCC), Hudu Hussein accusing him of disrespect and sabotaging their meetings.
Lukwago and the KCCA speaker had called for the meeting indicating that 20 councillors would attend it physically while the rest would follow the proceedings via zoom, something which was the case, according to the RCC.
Upon reaching the venue, Hudu Hussein went straight to the city hall to confirm whether the councillors were observing Covid-19 guidelines, he found over 20 people which prompted him to storm out immediately.
He later deployed police to block the councillors from proceeding with the meeting which he said violated the ministry of Health guidelines aimed at fighting Covid-19.
He said that it was disgraceful for leaders to defy his order adding that he won’t relent in ensuring that Covid-19 measures are observed.
“Those who think that I am bad, it’s okay but for me what I am trying to is to implement Covid-19 guidelines and also save Ugandans and Kampala dwellers from death,” he said.
Lukwago and the councillors condemned the way the RCC disorganised their meeting, something which they said should never happen again.
“Who are those that came up with the list of the vulnerable which is full of chaos and that is what we want to know. We were expecting Mr. Hudu Hussein who has been moving up and down disorganising us. He would have come and explained to the council about the lists,” he said.
