Mustapha Mayambala, the Chairman DACCA says, in April 2013, court ordered KCCA to stop collecting the above amount from the drivers but Frank Tumwebaze re-ordered for its collection and the re-enforcement team did so following the minister’s orders.

He also said that Judge Benjamin Kabiito decided to stop the case on Tuesday.

“The minister has no authority to put up laws governing the authority as he claims he is only following section 79 of KCCA which is not true. The KCCA re-enforcement officers did not break any court order in re-collecting the above amount because they were just ordered by their boss,” said Mayambala.

Yeso Kaweesa, the mobilizer for DACCA complained that KCCA does not give them a chance as leaders to execute their work.

He gave an example of the Executive Director of KCCA, Jennifer Musisi who wants to handle issues concerning drivers when she does not even know the exact problems.

Kaweesa further called upon KCCA to give drivers a gap to work upon their issues without intervening.
