Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has reportedly fired his deputy Lord Mayor Sarah Kanyike for ‘accepting’ President Yoweri Museveni’s KCCA job.
Kanyike and 3 others were recently nominated by the President for top KCCA jobs. The Deputy Lord Mayor was nominated as director Gender, Community Services at KCCA, replacing Harriet Mudondo. Other nominations include; Dorothy Kisaka as KCCA ED, replacing Andrew Kitaka and replaced him with Kisaka. Sam Sserunkuma who has been acting Deputy Executive director will be replaced by Eng David Luyimbazi Saali, former KCCA Head of Planning. Richard Lule, Director Administration and Human Resource has also been dropped and replaced by Grace Akullo. Grace Akullo is Assistant commissioner Human Resource Management at Ministry of Public Service.
The latest is that Lukwago has fired Kanyike after his attempts to pursue her to reject Museveni’s appointment failed. During a recent interview, Kanyike neither rejected nor accepted Museveni’s appointment. Lukwago has subsequently named Doreen Nyanjura as the Deputy Lord Mayor.
