Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago on Thursday visited Usafi market to asses the conditions under Which the vendors are operating and and also come up with a report he’s expected to present to parliament.
His visit comes just a day before his slated appearance in parliament where he (Lukwago) and the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Executive Director Jeniffer Musisi are expected to explain how much the market cost.
Early this week, the presidential parliamentary committee summoned the KCCA to appear on Friday to explain how much money the authority spent on Usafi market.
This was after reports that the price of the land on which the market sits was inflated.
During the tour, it was revealed that some stalls in the market are owned by Musisi’s sister whose identity was not revealed by press time.
Lukwago was further told that the KCCA deputy Public Relations Manager Robert Kalumba owns five stalls in the market whose purpose was to accommodate thousands of vendors chased from the Kampala streets by KCCA.
However, we could not independently verify these reports.
