Jennifer Musisi’s deputy at Kampala Capital City Authority, Judith Tukahirwa has blamed security people for antagonizing development plans of the city.
Judith, who quit last weekend, said security people were sacrificing Kampala city’s development agenda, and cannot allow professionals do their work as mandated by the law.
It is understood that Gen Salim Saleh took over Kampala security ahead of elections, owing to the fact that the defiance campaign could spill into a security nightmare.
The general started working with various groups of people including politicians from across the divide, to ensure that the city was peaceful and Kizza Besigye was isolated.
Operating from Mutundwe, some politicians under the guiding hand of Kampala Central MP Mohammed Nsereko struck a deal with Saleh to isolate and undermine protesters and defiance campaign architects. Some of these MPs included noisy Kato Lubwama (Lubaga South) and Ibrahim Kasozi (Makindye East), who has since been operating underground.
The EX Deputy ED who wanted to run Kampala like a parastatal, did not like the political side of the city.
In her recommendation, Judith say Kampala has a potential to be the best city in the region, only if technocrats are left to do as they deem fit.
She also said Kampala should be extended to include Mukono, Mpigi, Wakiso, and Entebbe, despite the fact that the said administrations are under Local Government jurisdictions.
