Members of parliament on the human rights committee want government to find jobs for people who were hired by Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) but up to now are yet to begin working.
The Chairperson of the Committee, Jovia Kamateeka says last year KCCA advertised jobs which people applied for and did interviews with 35 of them and that these were hired but letters appointment given but that up to now, they are yet to start work.
Kamateeka says that this is against the principles of natural justice and that that it is inhuman to make someone go through interviews and you give them appointment letters and yet deny them a chance to work.
However, explained that whereas the acting director legal affairs at KCCA, Charles Ouma admitted that it’s true some people were appointed by the authority, they cannot let them begin work due to limited funds.
At the same meeting, State minister for Kampala, Bena Namugwanya , informed the committee that in four months the authority will organise election of boda boda leadership in Kampala so that they can streamline their operations.
