PARLIAMENT- Kawempe South Member of Parliament, Mr Mubarak Munyagwa has confirmed meeting Eng Andrew Kitaka, the acting Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) but refuted claims that their conversation was rotates around the ongoing probe into the authority.
On Monday, photos of Mr Munyagwa and Eng Kitaka went viral on social media platforms with reports saying the two discussed how to strike a compromise on the on-going probe into KCCA staff appointments by the Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE).
Mr Munyagwa chairs COSASE.
COSASE is seeking the dismissal of Mr Moses Atwine, whose recruitment as KCCA Director Physical Planning, has been termed as “unlawful” because he does not have the requisite qualification for the job.
On Tuesday, Mr Munyagwa told journalists at Parliament that the meeting captured on a CCTV camera at the Silver City Restaurant, Garden City, was not pre-planned because he was “only going to the gym when he encountered Eng Kitaka.
“I met with Kitaka nine days ago. The problem I have with Kitaka is the delay by the contractor to clear the Lubigi Drainage channel. This was not a secret meeting as some media houses are insinuating. How could I have a secret meeting at a balcony of a restaurant in broad day light?” Mr Munyagwa said.
