Residents of Kisenyi in Kampala have been called upon to welcome development brought in by private investor because it is for their own benefit. 
 
The call has been made by deputy director revenue collection KCCA, Julius Kabago during the launch of the new branch of Diamond trust Bank at USAF market in Katwe.
 
He said that it is from the private investors that KCCA is able to get taxes that help develop the city. 
 
“We need fly overs in our city to reduce the jam, more good roads, health centres and other developments. So if we come requesting for your support in case we have brought people to develop your areas, please cooperate with us, it is not for KCCA’s benefit but for all Ugandans,” Kabago said.
 
He cited examples of USAF market and USAF which people resisted initially but today are benefiting through getting job.
 
Varghese Thambi, the chief executive director DTB said this is a good opportunity for people’s money to be safe. 
 
“Whenever people move with money from one place to another, chances are high that the money could be stolen. That’s why I am calling upon all people in Kisenyi to use banks to save their money, and I believe it is safer than keeping it in your house,” said Thambi.

Musa Muleme, the LCI chairman Katwe zone thanked DTB for bringing their services in the area saying that people have been losing money because they lacked safe places to keep it.
 
“Katwe is a place where you expect someone to robe you any time, and with the bank coming to our area we hope theft is going to reduce. I call on residents to keep their money in the bank because it is safe there, “Muleme said
