After the death of a female city hawker one Oliver Basemera who drowned in Nakivubo channel fleeing KCCA law enforcement officers, Kampala Capital City Authority Executive Director Jennifer Musisi has raised concerns over her safety and possible threats to her life.
Her fears were raised through KCCA’s special authority meeting held by Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago on Wednesday based on a telephone conversation between the two bests of the city authority. Lukwago told the meeting that he had been informed by Musisi, that she would not attend the seating due to serious security threats she was receiving. Panicky KCCA boss to show how dire the matter was to her life she penned the same concerns in writing indicating that there are ongoing concerns over her personal safety a result of which she has been advised to restrict her movements while her security is being reviewed.
The letter dated August 8, is addressed to the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago. She was equally represented by Moses Atwiine, the acting Executive Director of Kampala to lead the technical team in a meeting convened to discuss the controversy surrounding law enforcement in Kampala. Atwiine equally confirmed the fears adding that Musisi has been advised to address the issues until advised to contrary then she will be free to move around. All these issues surrounding Musisi’s life have also come up due to the harassment that a session of city traders presume that they are being exerted on by KCCA law enforcers on orders of Musisi.
In recent concluded presidential elections, President M7 raised the same concerns after losing Kampala city to opposition due to anger from city dwellers who refused to vote the NRM party candidates with a feeling that Musisi’s leadership is so autocratic. Some security gurus in Kampala have analyzed that Musisi has accumulated a number of enemies who could end up her easily in case she is not guarded well.
