Centenary Park

Last week, MPs on the Committee on State Authorities and State Enterprises ordered for the demolition of the illegal structures in the controversial Centenary Park to pave way for the construction of the Kampala sewer project.

In a meeting attended by Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), the proprietors of the park represented by Godfrey Nyakana and the Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura at Parliament on Thursday, the committee directed National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) to immediately mobilise the contractor to start work.

Committee chairperson Abdu Katuntu however asked Police to ensure that the exercise is carried out in an orderly way to avoid the past incidents that resulted into violence when KCCA tried to forcefully evict the proprietors of the park.
