Kampala Capital City Authority-KCCA made over 1 billion shillings worth of irregular payments in the year ending June 2021.
According to the Auditor General’s report, KCCA spent more than 1.3 billion Shillings in overpayments and other irregular payments on different construction projects mostly roads funded under the Kampala Institutional Infrastructure Development Project II (KIIDP II).
The listed expenditures happened during the construction of Kulambiro Ring Road, Spur-Najjera Road, Nakawa-Ntinda Road and John Babiiha Avenue. KCCA further made payments of over 240 million Shillings during the construction of Kabuusu-Bunamwaya-Lweza road.
Makindye East three councillor Mosh Afrikan Ssendi, says the report exposes the abuse of office and corruption at KCCA which the council has always sought to check by demanding for accountability.
Ssendi says political leaders at KCCA asked for accountability into the renovation of the Old taxi Park to ascertain the expenditure of the over 10.9 billion Shillings but were ignored.
