The Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development, Janat Mukwaya has paid a courtesy visit to Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwag.
Mukwaya said she was in Kampala district on a field monitoring visit to asses selected projects financed under the Community Development Driven (CDD) program. These are Youth Livelihood Program (YLP) and the Uganda Women Entrepreneurship Program (UWEP).
Mukwaya said she was finding out whether Lukwago is aware of the projects being implemented in Kampala and gather his views as an elected leader. Lukwago raised questions on how the beneficiaries were selected but Mukwaya retorted that the process is transparent.
//Cue in: "my visit was…
Cue out:…took it up."//
//Cue in: "nga enkola yaffe…
Cue out:…tuza kukyilongosa."//
Lukwago appreciated Mukwaya's visit, saying he was provided more information about the projects, which was scanty. He further applauded the community development driven projects being implemented in Kampala but said more are needed.
Lukwago told Mukwaya that there is an urgent need to pass the Kampala City Market Ordinance and amendment of the 1942 Market Act. He said the old market law is no longer relevant.
Mukwaya promised to forward the issue of amending market law to Minister for Trade and Cooperatives.
