The Kampala Capital City Authority spokesperson Daniel NuweAbeine has revealed that the authority will today be ready with sorted data to be used to verify city residents who will benefit from government’s covid cash relief.

He says the final verified data will be sent out to various divisions and parishes for local council leaders for further scrutiny before the release of the money to the recipient anticipated on July 6th.
Speaking on KFM’s DMighty breakfast show this morning, Prime minister Robinah Nabbanja has confirmed that they will pick data of beneficiaries from KCCA and town clerks today.
The Permanent Secretary in the ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development Aggrey Kibenge revealed that a Shs 4m funding support will be provided to every municipality and division with in the cities to facilitate compilation of the lists, with the final list of beneficiaries expected to be submitted by July 6th.
