Officers of KCCA who served under the administration of Jenifer Musisi are in panic following a resolution to bring to account everyone culpable of mismanagement during the Musisi era.
This follows a resolution that was passed during the authority meeting on Thursday in which majority of Musisi loyalists were identified as legitimate targets in a move to bust a racket that is suspected to have swindled billions of public funds through dubious deals during Musisi’s reign as KCCA ED.
The first causality of this move is KCCA’s former legal officer Charles Ouma who is implicated in a 3.8BN scandal in which public funds were splashed out through bogus compensations. It is alleged that billions and billions of money were lost through fraudulent deals endorsed by officers at KCCA who were loyal to former ED Jenifer Musisi.
The authority that sat on Thursday resolved to take legal action against Charles Ouma, and directed KCCA’s legal department to file a case against Ouma within two weeks time. Ouma is said to been Musisi’s close confidant during his days in office at KCCA.
Ouma is accused of sanctioning compensations amounting to 3.8BN in form of out-of-court settlement claims to seven people in 2012. The beneficiaries had sued KCCA after Jenifer Musisi’s blocked their appointments as KCCA employees of the authority yet Public service had approved them.
Surprisingly, the litigants in this particular case are now comfortably employed at City Hall.
Sources at City Hall indicate that the crackdown on officers involved in fraudulent deals at KCCA under the administration of Jenifer Musisi, is not targeting Ouma alone, but several other officers both still in and out of office.
Sources noted that incessant resignations at KCCA by officers loyal to Musisi are not accidental, and legitimate targets in this clampdown include Caleb Mugisha the current legal officer for the authority, the Kampala District chairperson Land Board Yusuf Nsibambi, Jenifer Musisi, and many others.
