Kampala minister Betty Kamya “CCTV project will not affect KCCA budget”

By Damali Mukhaye.

The minister for Kampala Betty Kamya has assured officials at Kampala Capital City Authority that the issue of CCTV camera installation in Kampala and across the country will not affect their budget.

Her assurance comes after city lord mayor Erias Lukwago wrote to the minister asking how KCCA was  going to install cameras in the city with their budget slashed from Shs 656 bn to Shs314 bn.

In a 3rd April letter to Lukwago, Kamya assures the authority that its budget will not be affected.

She explains that the plans to execute the presidnetial directive are in high gear between the president’s office, police and KCCA and the money will either be got from budget re-allocations, loan or supplementary budget.

President Yoweri Museveni recently emphasized the need to have CCTV cameras intalled within the city and other parts of the conuntry following death of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi who was gunned down by unknown assailants near his home in Kulambiro, a Kampala surburb last month.
