Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) speakers and deputy speakers for city hall and in the five divisions of Kawempe, Nakawa, Makindye, Rubaga and Central will start receiving millions of money in allowances every month.
This after the Minister for Kampala and Metropolitan Affairs Minsa Kabanda released a document showing the allowances each of them will get.
Kabanda also wrote to KCCA executive director Dorothy Kisaka on the matter.
“I would like to guide the implementation of this new structure of emoluments be urgently done to avoid unnecessary litigations,” said Kabanda.
