Frank Tumwebaze, Minister for the Presidency
We promise vigilance and monitoring of all Government programs. We are creating a feedback system through the resident district commissioners, so as to find out which structures are working and put right those that have failed.
We also plan on setting up a toll free call centre for the public to be able to call the presidency on any matter. It will be a 24-hour service.
This will be set up as soon as we move into the new offices of the President and the Prime Minister located on Sir Apollo Kaggwa Road.
Jennifer Musisi, KCCA director
2013 will be a year of implementation because we have put in place systems that will enable us deliver better services. We have directorates and some staff. We have programs and a budget in place.
We will continue implementing most of those programs and start on new ones. We shall complete the Lubigi Channel to help alleviate the problem of floods in areas like Bwaise. On roads, we got only about 20% of the funds we asked from the Government and so, we will not be able to reconstruct all the roads.
We will do what we can with the available funds; continue patching up roads until we have enough money to rebuild them. On street lighting, we have covered the central business district.
In 2013, we shall extend to the divisions, starting with Nakawa, by reinstating lights and cables that were vandalised. On bodabodas, we plan to reduce their number and conduct identification. For markets, Wandegeya Market will be opened to accommodate over 1,000 vendors.
For beautifying the city, we will continue encouraging the private sector to support our efforts, for example like they have done with the round about on Wampewo Avenue and the Clock Tower. We are also going to continue cracking down on people who park on the green areas during events.
On the whole, I promise a cleaner, more beautiful and organised city by the end of 2013.
Judith Nabakooba, Uganda Police spokesperson
We promise Ugandans that we shall equip our Criminal Investigation Department with specialised techniques to detect and investigate cyber-crime. We realised a rise in these crimes in the past year, like the ATM fraud and we are planning for it.
Also, as the population of Kampala hits four million, we will establish a Police station in every parish in the Kampala City Council Authority jurisdiction. Each will be headed by an assistant superintendent of Police to ensure that services are more accessible to the residents.
We shall strengthen our community policing, whereby the Police partners with the community to fight crime by engaging in patrols, gathering information on security matters, reporting suspicious issues, holding community meetings and identifying solutions to problems.
Irene Mulyagonja, Inspector General of Government
We plan to swear in the second deputy IGG, George Bamugemereire, so that, as a full house, we become more effective in service delivery.
We shall be in position to work on our own, and more effectively without assistance from the Director of Public Prosecutions. The inspectorate will continue to fight corruption.
Join us in the fight by alerting us about corruption in their midst, because so many things happen out there and if we are not aware about them we cannot stop them.
Daudi Migereko, Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development
The lands ministry will open six offices in Jinja, Mbarara, Kampala, Mukono, Wakiso, and Masaka districts, to process land titles and leases. These will be operational by February. They will decongest the Kampala office and reduce on cases of corruption.
In February, the ministry shall embark on a project to build 2,500 houses for medical officers at the doctors’ village, Mulago and 500 houses in old Kampala for teachers.
There will be construction of 300 units under slum redevelopment in Kireka after July. We shall run advertisements for interested companies to take on the contract.
