Mayor’s Message

His Worship, the mayor Ssemwanga Godfrey

Welcome to the official website of Makindye Ssabagabo Municipality where we will interact and share ideas for the betterment of our municipality. The website is an information highway, intended to serve as a medium to communicate and highlight the activities, roles and responsibilities of the municipality.

Nonetheless, it is significant to note that the website is not replacing our custom modes of communication through which we get feedback from the public but will rather complement other channels that are instrumental for effective service delivery in the municipality.

As a municipality, we intend to harness the capabilities of technology to spur development and also showcase its immense potential to the world.

Lastly, let this website be an avenue for us to build a home for us to always cherish.

I thank you all and God bless.

Ssemwanga Godfrey
