Gov­ern­ment has re-tabled the pro­posed amend­ments in the 2010 Kam­pala Capital City Au­thor­ity Act which has been shelved for two years un­der un­known cir­cum­stances.

The Kam­pala Cap­i­tal City Au­thor­ity Bill, 2015 which has been tabled by the min­is­ter of State for KCC Beni Na­mug­wanya, in­tends to pro­vide for the Lord Mayor to be elected by the Coun­cil from the councilors; to clar­ify the roles of the Lord Mayor [and] to ra­tio­nalise the pro­vi­sions re­lat­ing to the Metro­pol­i­tan Phys­i­cal Plan­ning Au­thor­ity with the struc­ture and pro­vi­sions re­lat­ing to the Cap­i­tal City Au­thor­ity and re­lated mat­ters.”

Per­tain­ing po­si­tion, pow­ers and roles of the lord Mayor, the min­is­ter stated that, it is er­ro­neous to provide for the Mayor to have ex­ec­u­tive powers and as the “po­lit­i­cal head of the Cap­i­tal City yet Kampala Cap­i­tal City is ad­min­is­tered by the Cen­tral Gov­ern­ment where the min­is­ter should be the political head with ex­ec­u­tive pow­ers.
