Joseph Waswa Ziritwawula, one of the first leaders of Kampala District council has broken his silence about the leadership wrangles sorrounding the administration of Kampala City Authority.
Ziritwawula who headed Kampala District council in the late eighties told Uganda Radio Network on Thursday that the current fights between the Lord Mayor and Kampala City Authority executive Director are not desirable.
He says it is possible for the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and the Executive Director Jennifer Musis to work together if they agree on the modalities to improve the management of the city.
// Cue In “Today Kampala is a total menace……….
Cue Out…. Has got to come down”///
Ziritwawula says the confusion in the city characterized by politicians opposing the eviction of the vendors, Taxi’s and bodaboda requires determined and principled leaders to stand by the decision to have a better Kampala.
Ziritwawula says he worked with principled councilors who managed to resist pressure at the time when the council resolved to remove traders operating in container shops on Luwum Street.
He says the late former Prime Minister, Dr. Samon Kisseka had attempted to arm twist the council but it stood its ground and had the vendors removed. He doubts the current quality of leadership can withstand such pressure
/// Cue In “I think the quality of leaders…..
Cue Out …. They get their money back”//
Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago recently sued Kampala City Authority Executive Director , Jennifer Musisi alleging she was interfering with his work.
Musisi is also being battled by councilors demanding hefty allowances and salary. Ziritwawula says some of the demands by the councilors are outrageous.
// Cue In “Many people now look
Cue Out we should get ten million”//
He wonders how councilors who are likely to meet once in month can demand to be paid ten million shillings.
