Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has appointed Counsel Samuel Muyizzi Mulindwa as the Chairman of the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) validation court.
He named Eng. Brian Kayemba and Eng. Daphne Muwonge members of the court pursuant to S.17 the Local Governments (Rating) Act, 2005 as amended.
The instrument of appointment for the KCCA Valuation Court was presented to the Authority Council by Deputy Lord Mayor Doreen Nyanjura.
The City Valuation Court is tasked with settling disputes arising out of Levy of Property tax by the City Council.
Previously, the Lord Mayor proposed to the Council a banded system of Property Rates taxation which is aimed at relieving the urban poor by creating another tier for the small property owners to provide for a nominal rate, that is, to the lowest threshold provided for by law of two thousand shillings.
He tasked the technical team to expedite this process to enable Council to create a new revised and fair rate for the small property owners before the conclusion of the next valuation cycle and implored the institution to explore means to ensure the Central government increases funding to the Capital City.
