KAMPALA, UGANDA: The contract of Ms Dorothy Kisaka, the current Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) is on the verge of running out with her renewal status in the hanging after a plot was aiming to stand in her way of getting a second term was unleashed.

Ms Kisaka who was appointed KCCA ED in 2021 will will need either a miracle or a direct intervention of President Museveni if she is to return her position, something which looks unlikely after “Mafias” already plotting to make sure she doesn’t get the favour from the appointing authority.

Having replaced the former ED Jennifer Musisi Ssemakula on a three year term, Kisaka will see her reign as KCCA ED elapsed next week on 23rd, July and a successor, whether in acting or substantial capacity will definitely be appointed, unless her contract gets renewed.

According to exclusive reports coming from the City Hall, things are not exactly what the ‘spotlessly soft’ ED will want to hear after the emergency of a seemingly well-calculated move to oust her in favour of someone else. As things stand, a list of candidates has already been sent to Public Service for consideration but surprisingly, the incumbent has been missing!

After a careful review of the finding from the City Hall, this publication has since established that Kisaka’s deputy, Eng. David Luyimbazi is at the forefront to take over his boss’ position after his name is among those forwarded to President Museveni to select a substantial ED from. We further learnt that efforts by the ED to have her cleared and her name included have remained frustratingly futile with some of the top officials at the authority standing in her way.

According to the law, the ED is expected to submit her interest for contract renewal to the line ministry which is Kampala and Metropolitan Affairs headed by the RCC Hajjat Minsa Kabanda along with other interested parties. The names are then sent to Public Service who consult with the President before conducting interviews whose outcome is again sent back for the eventual announcement.

By the morning of Monday, July 23, should Kisaka’s name remain missing on the list forwarded to Public Service, her position as the ED position will automatically fall vacant. The regulation dictates that the line Minister (Kabanda) will tentatively have the power to name someone to the position in an acting capacity.

Reports this publication could not independently verify further point out that the RCC (Ms Kabanda) is tossing the dice in favour of Eng Luyimbazi (the deputy ED) who she believes lobbying for him intensely may work towards swaying President Museveni to name him substantive ED should they succeed in pushing his boss out of the picture.

Some analysts have, however, punched holes in the speculations of an eminent rise of a new ED at City Hall owing to several factors. 

According to experts, the current regime at City Hall is credited for fostering cohesion, especially between the technical and political wings. Gone seem to be the days when ugly fights between the Lord Mayor and other politicians and the Technical team often led to confrontations that would disrupt business and lead to loss of lives and property.

Now that this havoc is no longer witnessed as regularly as it used to be, Kisaka deserves credit. The relative calm in the city with cases of robbery drastically reduced is also attributable to efforts to absorb the street population into the labour force of the city such as cleaners. These have dumped crime and ended up contributing to the well-being of the city. She has also overseen an improvement in revenue collection in the city leading the record figures of over UGX 100 Bn in the 2022/23 Financial year.

The factors above will automatically be on President Museveni’s mind as he contemplates his choices for the next Executive Director.

It remains to be seen if President Museveni will overlook the work of Mafias painting a bad picture of the current ED Kisaka and reappoint her for another reign.
