More than 200 councillors across the five divisions of Kampala City are meeting President Museveni at his farm in Kisozi, Gomba District, to learn modern farming methods and also discuss management issues in the city.
The meeting was organised by the Minister for Kampala Beti Olive Kamya. Ms Kamya says the Councillors and the president meeting is ‘‘a normal meeting which councillors had sought with the President.’’
“It’s just a day out for the councillors with the President and he will of course tour them around his farm in Kisozi and also teach them modern farming methods,” Ms Kamya said.
The minister also noted that the councillors would remind the President about the need to increase the budget of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to enhance service delivery in the city.
“Kampala is a cash cow of Uganda because it contributes about 70 per cent to the country’s Gross Domestic Product. In their previous meeting with the President, they demanded that Kampala’s budget ought to be increased if residents are to get better services.’’ She added.
