Andrew Kitaka has released his plan for the first three months of this year.
Kitaka, who was appointed in December last year by the Minster in charge of Kampala, replacing Jenifer Musisi, promised more development in the city as well as maintaining all the achievements of his predecessor.
Some of the projects he outlined to embark on include roads such as Kabuusu-Bunamwaya which will be upgraded from gravel to tarmac; as well as John Babiiha Avenue and Ntinda Nakawa roads which will be expanded to four lanes.
Kitaka also promised that flooding along clock tower and other areas in the city center is going to be addressed, and that open manholes will be covered with composite material which has no scrap value to prevent their theft.
“Dusty Road reserves from all over the city are going to be grassed or covered with pavers to prevent dust and mud which always block the water channels during rainy periods; business owners in the city and suburbs are going to be asked to work upon their front areas as one of the means to eradicate dust from Kampala,” he said.
“As one of the means to reduce on corruption, Building plans and other related activities are going to be submitted and approved electronically
Commenting on how he will handle the current ideological differences between the Technical wing he heads and the Political wing led by the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, Kitaka promised to work with them jointly to promote effective service delivery in the city
“We shall work with the political side to bring progress because they also support development within the city because it’s their political capital ”
