Museveni Tasks KCCA to Establish Two Gov’t Markets, Taxi Parks in Each Division


President Museveni has suggested to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to have two government owned markets and taxi parks in each of the divisions of Kampala.

“The people you have been chasing off roads have been saying they have nowhere to go, so if you do not plan for them where will they go?” He wondered.

Museveni also added that both logic as well as legal standing in addressing the market challenges in the country should always be applied.

President Museveni made these remarks on Tuesday while meeting Kampala Capital City Authority leaders and some of the market representatives over the leadership and management of markets in Kampala and the metropolitan areas at State House Nakasero.

In this meeting, Museveni also guided that these markets should be owned and managed by the low-income earners instead of being taken by the rich who in turn charge high fees from the wanainchi. 

“The rich can afford doing business on Kampala Road, Ntinda and all the other main roads. As leaders who love their country, you should think about the poor” he added.

This meeting follows the President’s directive on harmonization of issues affecting the common people in the informal Sector in Kampala and surrounding areas.

The fountain of honor also tasked the Prime minister to coordinate all different stakeholders and come up with a final solution in addressing the informal Sector and market challenges.

Currently, there have been challenges in the informal Sector stemming from mismanagement, ownership, policy and regulation among others.

In her remarks, the Prime Minister, Robinah Nabanja thanked the President for his efforts in always fighting for the common person and she pledged to work with all the stakeholders in finding a lasting solution to the market challenges.

The meeting was attended by the State Minister for Kampala Capital City and Metropolitan Affairs, Hon. Kabuye Kyofatogabye, the Local Government Minister, Hon. Raphael Magezi, the KCCA Executive Director, Dorothy Kisaka, the Kampala Resident City commissioner Amina Lukanga and Salim Uhuru, the Kampala Central division mayor, among others.
