KCCA boss Jenifer Musisi has met he family of two-year-old Ryan Ssemaganda who was knocked dead by the authority’s car at city hall premises this week.

The bereaved family had earlier refused to bury the toddler unless Musisi apologised for mistreating them after the loss of the baby.

Chimpreports understands the family accused Musisi of giving them only shs2m to cover burial expenses and an ambulance to take the body which was withdrawn before reaching its destination.

The mourners had also returned Shs2m and other items offered by KCCA, physician saying the conditions in which they were offered undermined their status.

On Thursday afternoon the parents together with other relatives had planned to bring the body to parliament as a sign of their dissatisfaction, no rx but Police commanded by Kampala south Commander, approved James Ruhweza blocked them.

They later took back the body to their home in Massajja Gangu, Wakiso District under tight security.

The deceased’s father Juma Basena, held that his grief couldn’t be fixed by mere donations but through dialogue and explanations from KCCA.

“Money can’t save us from the suffering we are going through now. I have made a great loss because I will never know if my kid was going to be the next president of Uganda who could have given me more than just these two million shillings,s” Juma said.

Various opposition politicians including, Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, Councillor Allan Ssewanyana and Mubarak Munyagwa addressed mourners.

“As parents, we are with you in this trying moment. We have got lawyers and other people that are going to work with you to ensure that justice prevails in this matter,” said Lukwago

A team comprising parents and other immediate relatives was then escorted by Police led by KMP Commander, Haruna Isabirye to City Hall to meet the Executive Director.

On reaching City Hall, the mother of the deceased, Madinah Namutebi reported to Musisi how the brutality of KCCA enforcement officers was making their lives miserable.

“Did you order your men to chase us with vehicles when we are on foot? Are you the one who ordered them to deny a chance to mother suspects to breast-feed their babies?” she questioned.

Musisi promised to probe the crimes committed by KCCA officers.

Musisi handed the parent an official letter containing her condolences and promised to meet them again as soon as the burial was done.

Ryan was later laid to rest at his parent’s home in Masajja.
