Hon. Beti Kamya, the Minister for Kampala, KCCA Executive Director Jenifer Musisi and deputy Mayor Sarah Kanyike have officially launched Kampala Capital City Authority [KCCA] Carnival.
The unveiling of KCCA Carnival got underway on Monday morning at City Hall.
“It’s official! The 5th edition of #KampalaCityFestival happens 2 October 2016. It’s a #BlackYellowRed Affair. Enjoy more photos here from the launch,” KCCA said in a social media message.
Uganda Breweries, the 2016 Platinum Sponsor of the festival handed Musisi a Shs150m dummy cheque at the event.
Over the weekend, Musisi was in Nandi County, Northern Rift of Kenya, where she toured inspiring Kenya communities to step-up to their full potential in Public Service delivery.
June 24, 2016 marked a very significant milestone for Nandi County following the launch of an electronic revenue management system dubbed ‘e-Nandi’ —whose prototype is KCCA’s ‘e-Citie’.
Musisi launched the system at CITC grounds in Kapsabet while on a 2-day visit to Kenya during which she also toured a number of urban farming projects.
“We [KCCA] are very glad to be part of this breakthrough. It’s a classical example of how partnerships can help us as African Cities to build one another without necessarily spending a lot of resources,” Musisi said while launching the system.
e-Nandi is integrated with m-Pesa will help Nandi County determine how much revenue is collected per day per revenue source as well as indicating the performance of the collectors while mitigating fraud.
“We are very happy with this program because e-Nandi will ensure efficiency of collecting revenue is enhanced for the County’s sustainability and future development” —Dr Cleophas Kiprop Lagat (Governor of Nandi County) remarked.
