President Museveni Meets With KCCA Leaders To Discuss Development

The 1st of November 2022, saw President Museveni meet with Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) leaders. Also present at the meeting were representatives and management of markets in Kampala and the metropolitan areas. The meeting took place at State House Nakasero.

Museveni said that these markets should be managed by low-income earners instead of the rich who charge high fees from people.

He also revealed that these rich people can afford to do business in Kampala road, Ntinda and all other main busy roads. Therefore, as leaders who love their citizens, he called upon them to think about the poor and leave the markets to them.

Museveni recently gave a directive to harmonize issues affecting the common people in the informal sector in Kampala. The meeting came after this directive.

He further suggested two government-owned markets and taxi parks in each of the divisions in Kampala. He also emphasized that these should be managed by the local residents.

Prime Minister, Rt Hon Robinah Nabbanja thanked the President for his efforts in always fighting for the common person. She also pledged to work with all the stakeholders in finding a lasting solution to the market challenges.

The Minister of State for Kampala Capital City and Metropolitan Affairs, Hon Kabuye Kyofatogabye attended the meeting.

Other attendees were the Minister for Local Government Raphael Magezi, the KCCA Executive Director, Ms Dorothy Kisaka, the Kampala Resident City commissioner Amina Lukanga and Kampala Central Division Mayor Salim Uhuru.
