Former acting Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) executive director Eng Andrew Kitaka has quit his job as the director for engineering and technical services.
Kitaka has been at KCCA since 2011. He served as acting executive director following Jennifer Musisi’s resignation in October 2018.
In June 2020, President Yoweri Museveni picked Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda’s advisor Dorothy Kisaka as substantive KCCA executive director.
Kitaka kept his job as director for engineering and technical services.
But months later, he has announced his resignation.
His term has come to an end and President Museveni reportedly declined to renew it. Also said to be leaving KCCA after the president refused to renew their contracts are: Harriet Mudondo, the director for gender, community and production; and Moses Bwire, the director for internal audit.
Here’s Kitaka’s farewell message to staff at KCCA:
I have come to the end of my tenure of service at KCCA which started on 1 November 2011.
On 31st October 2020 it will be nine (9) years of service at KCCA.
What a Journey! We have walked this journey together and I would like to thank you most sincerely for the support you have accorded me during this period.
The transformation of our City Kampala is a process that many will contribute to and hopefully will be achieved within our lifetime. I HAVE DONE MY PART.
I would like to thank most sincerely HE the President of Uganda for entrusting me with this great responsibility and the Hon Ministers under whom I have served during the nine years for the support and guidance given to me.
To that staff of the Directorate of Engineering & Technical Services, your invaluable efforts have been key to the successes of KCCA and I appreciate you very much.
For those that I could have wronged in the execution of my duties, I sincerely apologize.
I trust that Kampala City remains under the stewardship of very capable hands that will carry on with the good work.
FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY.
Eng Andrew M Kitaka.
DIRECTOR ENGINEERING & TECHNICAL SERVICES.
