Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) deputy executive director Dr Judith Tukahirwa has revealed the rot at the Authoeity just hours after it emerged that she had resigned her job.
In her resignation letter, Tukahirwa says political and security interference in KCCA work has forced her to resign.
“I must say that it is these challenges which have come at a cost of my health, both physically and mentally. These are issues which players in Government may never consider important to the success of any project, however I hasten to add that in such a disincentive for professionals who mean well for this country and who have forsaken international jobs in the spirit of patriotism,” reads part of her resignation letter.
According to her, most of the achievements by KCCA in the four years of its existence have been eroded by political interference.
“Political expediency from certain quarters have taken over strategic planning and this has been tormented by persons within the security circles. It’s disconcerting for any KCCA administrator to deal with decisions made on the premise of rumours and conjecture,” she adds.
