Bank of Uganda governor, Emmanuel Mutebile, and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) executive director, Jenifer Musisi, combined earn Shs 96m monthly salary.

The information is contained in a report by the committee of Parliament chronicling the monthly salaries of top government officials and published in Daily Monitor.
The May 2015 report by House Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE) has called for equity in the pay structures of government parastatals, departments and commissions.
The committee chairperson, Ibrahim Ssemuju Nganda (Kyadondo East), confirmed the report as true.
The committee noted that some individuals are paid less than a quarter of salaries paid to others in different entities to do the same work.
Some of the least earners include; Angello Nkeeza, the Acting managing director Uganda Broadcasting Corporation with Shs4.1 million followed by Mr Emmanuel Mutahunga, the acting MD Uganda Export Promotion Board (UEPB) with Shs7.4 million and Prof Opuda Asibo of National Council for Higher Education, earning Shs9.8 million per month.
Chairman of National Organisation of Trade Unions, Wilson Usher Owere, told Daily Monitor on Thursday that the government was the doctor in charge of the patient called Uganda”.
He blamed the trend on the lack of a minimum wage.
