Following the crashing to death of a baby by an official authority vehicle at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Ugandans have insisted Executive Director Jennifer Musisi should face the sack.

On Monday, Kampala Capital City Authority law enforcers arrested Madina Namusisi, 22, a hawker of oranges in Kampala and detained her in the cells.

In the process, the woman’s two year-old baby Ryan Ssemaganda was abandoned upon which it sought shelter under a KCCA vehicle. The crying child was later run over by the official vehicle of the KCCA spokesperson, Peter Kauju driven by a one Baguma Anwali. The baby’s body was taken to Mulago hospital. Sources said KCCA was by yesterday evening making arrangements for the burial of the baby.

“This case should be thoroughly investigated and if KCCA is found to have caused the child death through reckless endangerment Jenifer Musisi and her staff should be held to account, this kind of mentality at city hall has been largely the result of blocking the political head from office yet he would have been in position to check the excesses of the so called technical staff who include the enforcement employees, Musisi should be sacked,” one incensed reader commented on social media.

“When they arrested the mother did they have to separate her from the baby? This case should be thoroughly investigated and if KCCA is found to have caused the child death through reckless endangerment Jenifer Musisi and her staff should be held to account, this kind of mentality at city hall has been largely the result of blocking the political head from office yet he would have been in position to check the excesses of the so called technical staff who include the enforcement employees,” Bedmot Abednego Williams also added.

According to veteran journalist Chris Obore, KCCA has gone way to far from arresting, harassing and now to killing people.
