Kampala Capital City Authority has recruited new law enforcement officers to be deployed on the streets during the festival season.

Jennifer Musisi Ssemakula, the KCCA executive director, says a total of 200 temporary officers have been recruited for a specific period of time to monitor the streets and enforcement of trade order.

She says the recruited officers shall be assigned duties relating to monitoring the street vendors, enforcing trade orders and the general stability during the Christmas season.

Speaking to journalists at City Hall on Wednesday, Musisi explained that with the advent of KCCA a number of former Kampala City Council workers in the law enforcement department were arrested for engaging in illegalities bringing their numbers to reduce.

Musisi says the official recruitment of staff at the authority is still awaiting the Public Service Commission approval.

Cue out: …they were doing.” //

Musisi says the new staff shall also help the authority to enforce the garbage management ordinances in the city for the entire period.

She noted that KCCA litter bins have been distributed along city streets to avoid littering of garbage on the streets.
