“According to section 49 of the KCCA act, the Authority budget must be passed by the Lord Mayor in a fully constituted authority meeting,” Lukwago remarked.

Lukwago sighted out that before releasing funds for the new financial year, parliament should demand accountability from KCCA showing how the ending financial year’s funds were spent.

“We should not be over taken by these exaggerations in some media outlets about city beautification; we need accountability for all the funds that have been spent on greening the city and infrastructures.”

He adds that although many roads have been reconstructed it Kampala, many have been financed by other projects like World Bank and UNRA so there is a need for the authority to account for the billions that are spent every financial year.

On the same note, Lukwago has revealed that in the new KCCA Budget among others has budgeted for Shs 36bn for the purpose of purchasing USAFI Market which belongs to a private individual.
