Musisi had appointed a one Jonathan Ggitta as the committee chairperson but vendors furiously rejected the appointment, saying they would settle for Muteesasira Mawejje who was the market chairperson before the entire area was refurbished.

However, Musisi rejected vendors’ pleas before proceeding to flag off the committee’s work.

According to Musisi, the interim committee is set to run the market affairs for a period of one year and there after elections shall be conducted to allow market vendors choose a leader of their own.

The 8-man team includes Michael Mussajjalumba, Grace Tusiime, Jesphe Kalema, Richard Kamya, Swaibu Musoke, Agnes Mungoma Derrick Kulubya and Susan Nabakiibi.

To date 1,098 facilities have been allocated to vendors in the market. 43 facilities (lock-up, butcheries and stalls) have not been claimed and 36 lock-ups, 9 butcheries, 4 matooke stalls and 20 chicken cages have not been allocated.

Close to 500 vendors now operate in the new facility which was commissioned by President Museveni late last year.

The interim leadership has requested KCCA to extend the grace period for the monthly dues for at least two months. KCCA earlier granted the vendors a grace period of 3 months which expire at the end of May 2014.

A stall in Wandegeya goes for as low as Shs 40,000 while a lockup attracts 80,000 per month.

Musisi reiterated KCCA’s commitment to providing more spaces in the city by building more facilities in different city divisions.
