The council lacks representation of four technical bodies.

In addition to the politically elected councillors, the expanded KCCA Council has members from the following professional bodies, as full voting members: Uganda Institute of Professional Engineers; Uganda Society of Architects; Uganda Medical and Dental Practitioners Council and Uganda Law Society.

Officials to represent these bodies are yet to be appointed.

The ruling is a big blow to government especially Presidency Minister, Frank Tumwebaze and KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi who want Lukwago out office at all costs.

They accuse Lukwago of not convening meetings and sabotaging development programmes initiated by the authority which negatively affects service delivery in Kampala.

Lukwago had petitioned the High Court saying the tribunal was constituted against the advice of the Attorney General Peter Nyombi – that Councillors have no grounds to cause his impeachment.

Lukwago’s lawyers had also argued that the tribunal lacks rules of procedures that can guarantee a fair hearing.
