Joseph Tamale Mirundi, a former press secretary to President Yoweri Museveni, has spoken out of the resignation of Jennifer Musisi as the KCCA executive director.
Musisi announced her exit in a 21-page letter to Museveni on Monday, October 15.
She had been at the helm of the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) affairs for just over seven years.
According to Mirundi, the controversial presidential advisor on the media, Musisi’s exit is just the start of mass resignations and a major cabinet shakeup.
“I can tell that we are going to see more resignations and a fundamental reshuffle because the president must retain power,” said Mirundi during his Tuesday morning show on NBS.
“The problem isn’t the members of the first family: it’s the intruders; the president has never been a problem of this country.’’
There have been rumors of a major cabinet reshuffle for months.
However, Mirundi praised Jennifer Musisi for leaving before Museveni showed her the exit.
“Jennifer Musisi is clever. The moment you fail to bolt at an appropriate time; you fail to go with a political clout, that’s what happened to [former premier Amama] Mbabazi,” he said.
“You detect the situation and leave before you are fired. And for that, she has resigned without her dignity being tampered with.”
Musisi is expected to officially hand over office on December 15.
