In the Health Sector, we completed the renovation of Kitebi Health Centre, in Rubaga Division. Each of these facilities can accommodate over 50 in-patients in the maternity ward in addition to outpatient services. Our Health Units across the City continued to play a major role in the health industry handling 295,632 in the Out Patients Units, 13,247 deliveries and a total attendance of 29,733. We also have a Renal Unit to treat acute Kidney failure and 5 state of the art dental units in our division Heath centres.

We are also completing the civil works for Kawempe and Kiruddu hospitals funded by the African Development Bank. Each of these hospitals is a ten floor state of the art facility with 200 beds, modern theatres, helipads, pediatrics care, laboratories and underground parking.

Revenue Mobilization

Payment for Trading Licenses using e-Citie is now ready and shall start in January 2015.

Asset Growth
Over the last three and a half years, we have been able to grow KCCAs assets from a book value of UGX.42 Bn to the current net value of over UGX.422Bn. This has been through acquisition, recovery and procurement of various properties in the City.

Partnerships
As the credibility and public confidence in KCCA grows, we continue to build strong partnerships with the private sector, which is supporting us in various ways including equipping our health centres and renovating our schools.

Awards
This year, KCCA has received 21 awards (National, regional and International) for excelling performance. These included KCCA awarded ‘Best Government Agency’ in the World Savers Excellence Awards 2014, Best Quality Leadership Award” Las Vegas (U.S.A); the Global Award for Continued Innovation and Transformation of Kampala City 2014 in Rome (Italy), Best CIO Award in Country category and Ranking Among the Top 100 Organisations in CIO100 Annual Awards Competition East Africa Nairobi (Kenya), EALSCA Games Champions 2014, Best Government Agency on Social Media 2014 among others.

Transport management
We continue with arrangements to improve this sector. We started with the registration of Boda Bodas ahead of gazetting of stages and streamlining this sector. We are working to improve the taxi sector as well and elections of their leadership are slated for 30th December 2014.

The Kampala City Festival 2014
The Kampala City Festival 2014 was one of the our other major highlights of 2014; the attendance during the October event has grown from 100,000 people when we started 3 years ago to over one million people this year, with people coming from all over the Region as well as the diaspora. The event is fully funded by the private sector as a major business and publicity opportunity for them. It also profiles Kampala and Uganda as a tourist destination, and gives opportunity for brisk sales to small scale traders and members of the public.

The Kampala We Shall Have in the Year 2015

As KCCA, we are looking to yet another successful year of greater and improved service delivery to the people of Kampala. We are expecting to further excel in our work as we transform our City. We expect to increase revenue collection, construct more roads and drainages, improve traffic flow in the City, schools, health care, garbage collection and management and improved household incomes. It is a going to be a great year with more achievements.

We have got an approval by Parliament of a $175m towards improving roads, drains and junctions in the city which will go a long way in changing our infrastructure for the better.

However, Kampala’s transformation will also depend on what citizens are willing to contribute, and sacrifice. As long as the citizens do not participate in improving Kampala, the improvements can only be limited to what KCCA as one institution can do.

I would like to thank all those people out there that appreciate our work in the transformation of our City, the people who take off time to alert us, positively criticize, guide, encourage us and contribute ideas towards making Kampala better.

For any inquiries, please contact us on info@kcca.go.ug or 0200660000/0794660003/0794660032.
