News reaching our desk indicates that the Kampala Capital City Authority has received an executive order demanding a mega overhaul that has seen Eng. Andrew Kitakka, his deputy, Samuel Sserunkuuma and 3 other top officials asked to vacate with immediate effect.
The sacking is not clearly explained though reliable sources reveal that it is connected to their foiled ploy in which they conspired to fabricate false covid results for the city Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago. The foil was disclosed by the Mukono municipality legislator, Betty Nambooze Bakireke who presented the issue at the plenary today.
In a letter authored by Museveni on this very night of June, 12, five potential replacements are named to take over the respective offices of the incumbents. The five are the CID boss, Grace Akullo who will be the new Director, Human Resource and Administrative, Dorothy Kisaka who replaces Kitakka as Executive Director, Eng. David Luyimbazi Ssali to be Deputy ED, Dr. Okello Ayen Daniel to be the Director, Public Health and Environmental, Ms. Sarah Kanyike to be the Director, Gender, Community Services and Production.
Kitakka’s sacking has found him in self isolation as per the Ministry’s guidelines on Covid. Reacting to the development, the Finace secretary, Doreen Nyanjura jubilantly said on Facebook, “what’s not happening!! Our acting ED and his Deputy are currently self isolating, they have so far isolated for 7 days and have 7 days to go, why not let them isolate in peace?”.
Eng. Andrew Kitakka is the second Executive Director to serve after the sudden resignation of Jennifer Musisi Ssemakila in late 2018.
The matter is still developing. We shall delve deeper as more facts arise.
