Kyadondo East MP and singer Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has welcomed the resignation of Jennifer Musisi as the executive director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
In a 21-page letter on Monday, Musisi wrote to president Yoweri Museveni informing him of her decision to quit as KCCA boss in mid-December.
She cited political differences.
Musisi has been in office for just over seven years.
Bobi Wine, years ago, sang in criticism of the brutality the Musisi administrating meted on city dwellers, struggling businessmen and women in operations such as those to rid the streets of vendors.
In the song titled ‘Jennifer’, Bobi Wine sent a message to Jennifer to “reduce her brutality” because “the city is ours”.
According to Bobi Wine, Musisi deserves credit for admitting that she had hit a dead end in her pursuit to develop Kampala.
“I first of all congratulate her on being honest enough to resign after realizing that she had failed,” Bobi Wine told NTV.
“That’s a commendable step she took unlike those who hang on even when their failure is clear to them.”
Bobi Wine also sent a message to leaders and politicians who don’t think about the time they will out of office.
“All those in public offices must learn that they are in those positions to work for – and with – the public because they will return to the people when they have resigned or been kicked out of the jobs, and the clout with which they come where they will badly need to be loved, cared for and consoled,” he said.
