Minister for Kampala, Betty Olive Namisango Kamya has appointed Eng. Andrew Kitaka Mubiru as the Acting Executive Director for Kampala capital city authority (KCCA).
The appointment proceeds the resignation of Jennifer Musisi Semakula after serving for seven years since her appointment in 2011. Musisi has always worked towards reorganization of the city, construction of roads and improving traffic flow through installation of traffic rights and cameras.

Your Excellency, over the last seven and half years, we have made progress towards transforming Kampala and below are some of our performance highlights” reads in part of the resignation letter.
In the appointment letter, Kamya said to ensure continuity and smooth running of the city, “I have assigned the duties of the Executive Director to Eng. Andrew Kitaka Mubiru who is substantially the director engineering and technical services at KCCA,” read in part of that letter.
She confirmed powers to the Sam Serunkuuma to continue carrying out the duties of Deputy Executive Director until when the substantive one is appointed.
Kamya appealed to all KCCA workers to remain focused, objective and ensure performance to the expectation to the public and the nation at large and implored the general public to accord them maximum cooperation.
She lauded the former ED Jennifer Musisi for good work done and commitment in managing the city.
Kamya is reported to have submitted two names to the president for consideration of ED for KCCA and the two are Kitaka and Uganda’s Deputy Ambassador to China, Henry Mayega.
