Three months after 1,013 ex-city committee representatives got the uplifting news of court granting them Shs100bn in a six-year fight in court, Kampala Capital City Expert’s best official has requested against part of the High court decision.
In 2012, ten previous workers of the ancient Kampala City Chamber driven by Justine Kasule, the previous main colleague town assistant for Makindye, appealed to court. The charge was that their administrations were unlawfully ended 17 months after KCCA came into being.
They sued the service of Open Administration, KCCA official chief Jennifer Musisi, KCCA, Lawyer General and the Secretary, Open Administration Commission. The candidates tested the utilization of “unlawful” authoritative rules issued by the last with conditions in opposition to those under KCCA Act which contracted their services.
On April 24, the High court (Common Division) preliminary judge Lydia Mugambe decided that the end was both humiliating and bothering – in light of the fact that the candidates were rejected unceremoniously before accomplishing 60 years according to the laws relating to common servants.
Whereas the AG and KCCA had issued goals to advance, just Musisi in the long run documented an update of an interest refering to eight grounds. She asserted that “the educated preliminary judge blundered in law and certainty when she held that the respondents were previous workers of KCCA qualified for compensation and other appropriate advantages under the KCCA Demonstration, 2010,” one of the grounds says.
Mugambe had noticed that the previous KCC representatives had endured monetary pain. She included that they could have contributed their retirement bundles and earned adequate benefit from them on the off chance that they had been calculated properly.
“I therefore grant every one of the candidates general harms of Shs 5 million. Nonetheless, I am declining to grant commendable or reformatory harms. Likewise, taking into account that the agony and enduring occasioned to the candidates by both the legislature and KCCA, the general harms ought to be paid together as well as severally by both KCCA and government,” Mugambe ruled.
She likewise requested that the candidates be paid compensation and other material advantages under the KCCA Demonstration and different laws for the 17 months they worked under KCCA.
Shortly after Musisi’s allure, the ex-laborers driven by Brian Ssegawa, who was a ward head of Busega, requested of President Museveni through the priest accountable for Kampala Beti Kamya.
