Although president Museveni is yet to approve her resignation neither has he appointed a new executive director. Jenifer Musisi has today officially quit the office and handed it over the minister for Kampala Ms Beti Kamya Namisango.
Ms Kamya said she will run the office until a new executive director is appointed by President Yoweri Museveni.
President Museveni first appointed Musisi in 2011 on a three-year contract as executive director at KCCA which he later renewed in April 2017 amidst controversies including the president accusing her of failing him in Kampala in the 2016 general elections where he almost lost.
Musisi handed in her resignation letter to President Yoweri Museveni on October 15 which indicated that she would cease being executive director of KCCA effective December 15, 2018..
This came two years after the KCCA Deputy Executive Director, Ms Judith Tumusiime Tukahirwa also resigned on December 4, 2016.
Musisi has been on loggerheads with the embattled Kampala lord mayor Erias Lukwago, on who should be the head of KCCA.
