There has been power struggle since the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) act was passed.The power struggle has been between the Lord Mayor(Erias Lukwago) and the Executive Director ( Jennifer Musis), over who should develope and implement the projects in Kampala Capital City Authority.
On 23rd of September, Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago filled an application in which he was seeking prerogative orders from High Court to stop the Kampala Capital City Authority( KCCA) Executive Director from portraying his office as a ceremonial office and portraying Erisa Lukwaga(the Lord Mayor) her employee in KCCA.
Erias Lukwago also filled an application seeking the High Court to compel the Executive Director Jennifer Musis to release the fraudulent report on the disposal of KCCA's dispensary on plot 71 Nkrumah road and that the culprits involved be prosecuted among others.
However, yesterday the High Court passed a judgement in favour of KCCA 's Executive Director Jennifer Musis. Justice Mwangusya in his rulling said that the orders Erias filled can be solved by the Council and dismissed the case with costs. The Lord mayor says he will not foot the Court costs because the case was in the public interest.
''On matters of paying Court costs, am determined to go up to the Supreme Court. Paying costs for what? Iam not ready to pay even a single coin because this is a issue of administration in the KCCA". Said Erias Lukwago, KCCA's Lord Mayor.
Erias Lukwago has summoned Kampala Capital City Authority meeting on Monday to end the long time power struggle between the two offices. Erias says that the meeting will spend time to interpret the powers of the Lord Mayor and the Executive Director as stipulated in KCCA act.
