KAMPALA - The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) executive director, Jennifer Musisi, has said some Ugandans need "brain transplants" to transform their mindsets.

She said Uganda should set up ‘a factory to manufacture brain transplants’ for people who vandalize government property.

“You install security lights, road signage and they uproot them. You plant flowers they uproot them. I think some Ugandans need brain transplants to change their mindsets,” Musisi said.

The KCCA boss said ‘thugs’ have also vandalized KCCA garbage disposal bins and manhole covers.

"Vandals have damaged piped water supply systems, road signage, culverts, electricity installations and telecommunication masts across the country.

Vandalism has made delivery of services costly since government has to spend a lot of money in repairing and replacing vandalized property" she added.

Musisi was speaking during a consultative dialogue between KCCA and engineers, architects, lawyers, surveyors and real estate developers at President’s Office in Kampala on Tuesday.

The minister for presidency and KCCA, Frank Tumwebaze said the dialogue was aimed at providing an opportunity for the stake holders to give the authority a feedback on its operations and recommend better ways of doing business. 

Others asked KCCA to rein in over speeding motorists who do not respect zebra crossings, noise and water pollution, improve communication and take action on owners of buildings without toilets and ground parking areas that have been turned into business premises.
