Jennifer Musisi’s Term as KCCA Boss Expires

The contract for the executive director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Jennifer Musisi will expire in just about two weeks.

Musisi’s is currently serving her second term as KCCA boss. Each term is three years. Her current contract was renewed on April 14, 2014 and will end on April 14, 2017.

Uganda’s president Yoweri Museveni appointed Musisi the first KCCA boss in 2011 after Kampala City Council (KCC) was overhauled to create KCCA, and its new positions.

Before she joined the city authority, Musisi was the head of tax collector Uganda Revenue Authority(URA) legal department.

Section 17(2) of the KCCA Act stipulates that the executive director shall be appointed by President on the advice of the public service.

A person shall qualify to be appointed executive director if he or she is of high moral character and proven integrity, and is qualified to be appointed as Permanent Secretary in a government ministry.

The name of the person who will replace Musisi is still a well-guarded secret.
