The KCCA Executive Director Dorothy Kisaka has this mid-morning paid a courtesy visit to the Lord Mayor’s Office. They had an interface where the *Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago* welcomed her and further shared with her his strategic direction for Kampala City as she starts her tour of duty.

The interface was also intended to know one another as they plan for Kampala as a City of the 21st Century by improving its planning in a participatory and inclusive way.

They later toured the Lord Mayor’s Parlor and Gardens which greatly needs to be refurbished. The Lord Mayor’s Parlor was opened by the Governor Sir John Hathorn Hall in 1949 and marks the time when Kampala became a City. It is therefore an important part of Uganda’s national history and heritage which deserves to be preserved and protected.
