Kampala central division has so far lost more than 7.9 billion shillings to debtors, according to Joseph Ewama, the assistant Director of Audit in the auditor general's office.
Appearing before the commission of Inquiry into the alleged mismanagement in Kampala central division, Ewama said that the money is accrued from uncollected revenue from markets, car parks and property rates.
Ewama blamed KCC for the loss in revenue. He said that KCC lacks clear-cut procedures related to the award of tenders.
According to Ewama, KCC doesn't indicate to its contractors about the amount of money they should remit to KCC.
He also blamed KCC for encouraging the private firms to breach their contracts by allowing them to continue collecting revenue even when their contracts have expired.

The auditor general, John Muwanga, told the commission that KCC has no standard procedures of awarding and reviewing tenders. He said this has created a loophole in the management of tenders.
Muwanga told the commission that efforts to rectify this anomaly have often gone unheeded to.
