Commemorating World Aids Day in Kampala today, Kampala Minister Betty Olive Kamya has hit back at city councilors who are calling for her resignation, saying they are looking for cheap popularity.
Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) councillors yesterday accused minister Beti Olive Kamya of failure to implement resolutions passed by the authority’s council.
During a council session attended by both political and technical teams yesterday, the councilors accused the minister of failure to implement resolutions passed by the authority’s council demanding that she resigns.
“Let her resign because it’s like she wants to fail us yet we are supposed to plan for the people of Kampala. Ever since we assumed office, she has never attended any of our meetings and all the resolutions we passed have never been endorsed. So if she isn’t willing to work with us, she should resign from the Kampala ministry,” said Ms Doreen Nyanjura, a female councillor represen
The city lord mayor Erias Lukwago also accused the minster of not appearing or sending any delegate for six council meetings.
However, Kamya says she needs an independent mind to review the council resolutions, denying that she has ever been invited for any council meeting.
Kamya was this morning speaking at an event to commemoration to mark the World Aids Day organized by Kampala Capital City authority.
KCCA started off the day by Matching as part of the activities to commemorate the World Aids Day which is celebrated on 1st December worldwide as a key opportunity to raise awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic;
