Kamya agrees to attend council as pressure over KCCA Bill mounts

The Minister for Kampala Affairs, Ms Beti Olive Kamya, has succumbed to pressure from Kampala Capital City Authority’s (KCCA) political wing to attend council meeting on Monday and explain the relevance of tabling the controversial 2015 KCCA Amendment Bill to Parliament.

This will be Ms Kamya’s first time to attend KCCA council meeting since both parties assumed office in June last year.

She had snubbed the previous meetings on grounds that she was not supposed to attend council.

In her June 13, 2017 letter addressed to Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, Ms Kamya confirmed her attendance.

The minister’s acceptance to attend the Monday meeting comes at a time when KCCA is racing against time to present to the Presidential Affairs Committee about their stand on the controversial Bill.
