Musisi and Tumwebaze have been breaking laws ever since they set foot at City Hall:
ED Musisi to-date has failed to account for colossal sums of taxpayers’ money amounting to Shs148 billion for the financial year 2011/12. She also failed to transparently account for Shs58 billion found on the bank accounts of the former KCC. There is a very big body of cogent evidence which shows fraudulent procurement at KCCA by ED Musisi, contrary to the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Regulations 2003 (“PPDPA Act”).
why did ED Musisi fail to set up be a Capital City contracts committee as required by law?In the recent past, without advertising, she has been secretly awarding lucrative public contracts, to her close personal friends and family members. Section 61(1) & (2) of the KCCA Act states: “there shall be a Capital City contracts committee. The Capital City contracts committee shall comprise a chairperson, and four other members, all of whom shall be nominated by the executive director from among the public officers of the Authority and approved by the Secretary to the treasury.”Section 140 (2) of the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Regulations 2003 (“PPDPA Act”) states that “a bid notice shall be published in at least one newspaper which must be of wide circulation to reach sufficient prospective bidders to ensure effective competition.”
To-date Jenifer Musisi has refused to publish quarterly summary reports of all procurements and disposals. Section of 66(1) of the KCCA Act re: “reports of contracts committee” says the Capital City contracts committee ‘shall publish quarterly summary reports of all procurements and disposals’ made by it during the quarter concerned containing such particulars as may be prescribed by regulations made under section 82.
The Minister for Kampala Frank Tumwebaze failed to fulfil his legal obligation to setting up a Metropolitan Physical Planning Authority required by Law? Section 79(1)(d) of the KCCA Act says: “The Minister shall have the power to appoint and remove members of the Metropolitan Authority.”Section 21(1) of KCCA Act says: “There shall be a body to be known as the Metropolitan Physical Planning Authority.”
