Former Kampala Resident City Commissioner (RCC) Hudu Hussein has been transferred from Yumbe, hardly a year after he was taken there.
Hudu has now been moved to Lwengo District.
“Thanks to the welcoming people of Yumbe. I have learned a lot; from cross border security to refugee issues, etc. I am indebted to President Museveni for the trust and mentorship. Kampala and Yumbe are great leadership making experiences. I pledge loyalty and hard work. Looking forward to serving Lwengo,” he tweeted on Thursday.
He was transferred to Yumbe in May this year following his implementation of several policies that led him to clash with the Kampala residents.
While he was RDC of Kampala, as part of programs to clean the city, Hudu cleared vendors off the streets of Kampala to the detriment of many of them.
To this, he warned building and shop owners of closure in case vendors were found on their buildings or shop verandas. Equally, the outgoing Kampala RCC gave street preachers a 30-day ultimatum to vacate the streets.
Following his transfer to a district 500km away., a number of Ugandans took to social media to comment that he was being punished over the move.
However, his return to the central part of Uganda is a vindication that he still has favour from the President’s office.
