Jennifer Semakula Musisi, the Executive Director Kampala Capital City Authority- KCCA has penned a letter implicating the political wing led by the Lord Mayor, Division Mayors and councilors for inciting vendors to attack KCCA law enforcement officers.
In her August 11th, 2017 letter, Musisi claims that politicians at different levels have been influential in inciting the community to rise against and oppose enforcement operations in their divisions.
Musisi contends that the actions of the politicians have resulted into attacks by the vendors and members of the public against KCCA law enforcement officers leading to physical injuries and loss of organs.
She cites a case where “one staff lost an eye and another sustained brain injuries and spent over a month under intensive care in a hospital.”
“The KCCA political leadership including Authority and Division Councilors has consistently accused our staff of being murderers, thugs, brutal, high handed and unprofessional and stirred up resentment and physical attacks on the staff by the public,” Musisi writes.
She says the political leadership, which formulate policies that law enforcers are trying to implement shouldn’t be condemning KCCA law enforcement staff.
