Musisi, Lukwago Finally Reconcile

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) executive director Jennifer Musisi has finally met and reconciled with bitter rival, Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago.

Musisi on Wednesday paid an impromptu visit to Lukwago where they held talks and shook hands with smiles, the first time after 7years political rift and disagreement.

For many year’s Lukwago and Musisi have not been good allies due to political differences and affiliations. Each of the two claimed to be the head of KCCA, a factor believed to have ignited the scuffle between the two.

The differences between Lukwago and Jennifer lie in the nature of tactics and resources they use to achieve their objectives.

Some people believe that Lukwago uses traditional tactics and his position to win favour and support of taxi drivers and market vendors. Jennifer on the other side uses all the resources available at her disposal to appeal to the urban elites who want clean and less congestion in the city.

Lukwago has been arrested and jailed in many occasions. According to a KCCA report, he was found guilty of abuse of office, incompetence and misconduct which led to his impeachment in 2013.

All that escalated the rift between the Executive Director and the mayor, making them political enemies.

According to the letter submitted to president Museveni Musisi will be stepping down on Saturday December 15th.

With only 10 days for the completion of her duties as KCCA Executive Director, this did not stop her from making peace and reconciling with her longtime political enemy Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago at city hall Kampala.
