President, Yoweri Museveni has added another six months to the term of the Acting Executive Director Kampala Capital City Authority-{KCCA}Engineer Andrew Kitaka.

The letter dated January 10th, 2020 is addressed to Kitaka, the Public Service Ministry Permanent Secretary, Catherine Bitarakwate Musingwiire.

The President writes that the Former Kampala Minister, Beti Olive Kamya appointed Kitaka as Acting KCCA ED following the resignation of his predecessor, Jennifer Musisi from Dec 18th, 2018 to Dec 18th, 2019 during which period Kitaka acted as KCCA Executive Director.

Kitaka exceeded six months in this capacity which is provided for in the Public Service Standing Orders for one to serve in an acting capacity. However, the period has not been regularised and validated retrospectively.

Museveni has now extended the Acting appointment of Kitaka for a period of six months from Dec 18th, 2019 to June 18th, 2020.

Museveni states in the letter that in case a substantive Executive Director is appointed before the six months expire, Kitaka’s term shall automatically elapse.

The letter was presented by the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago to the council sitting on Tuesday during discussions of the KCCA budget that will be presented to parliament.

Lukwago says government should appoint a substantive Executive Director rather than appoint People in acting capacity.
