“The youth and other marginalized groups such as women councils, disabled person’s council and elderly persons have no place within the proposed new KCCA framework, calling for provisions to be inserted in this bill for their existence.” Akello said.
The bill should accommodate the youth in Kampala and provide a section which allows the Authority to fund the youth and other special interest groups activities to avoid them being isolated without support.” She added
The proposed Kampala capital city Authority Amendment bill 2015 seeks to trim the lord mayors political powers which some MPS on the committee saying would disfranchising the voters .
