Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has refuted allegations that he is the problem at Kampala Capital City Authority [KCCA].
“I can’t be the problem at KCCA, I was elected overwhelmingly,” Lukwago said Thursday night while appearing on#NBSFrontline programme.
He said the implementation of the law is the biggest problem in Kampala. Kampala’s political head is the Lord Mayor that has to be respected.
He then pointed out that the Minister of Kampala, Beti Kamya, will never be his boss.
“She is my supervisor; she is not my boss, no!”
In her defence, Hon. Kamya said it is the law that makes Lukwago report to the Minister and Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi.
“I don’t harbour any conflicts with Erias Lukwago, I even voted for him, he knows it.”
She said the Supreme Law says Kampala City will be administered by the central government which is headed by the President.
“The head of central government will appoint the Executive Director and the Minister.”
She noted that the law also says while the Lord Mayor is the head of the city, he has to report to the Minister.
“The minister will give general directives on the policies of the Kampala City Council.”
