At first I was convicted by the Kangaroo court under Gen Elly Tumwiine so this report by Justice Bamugemereire is not a surprise. We knew the contents even before it was released, approved http://darioergas.org/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/wp-contact-form-7.php ” said Lukwago.


Commissioning the new taxi park in October, President Museveni reiterated his stand on Lukwago:


“I don’t hold grudges against any one….If my son Lukwago reforms in the interest of moving Kampala forward. I will work with him.”

He added: “My interest is that without delay what needs to be done is done, for a clean, organized and prosperous Kampala. Construction of Bujagali was delayed by politicians and you all know how their actions impacted electricity for industries, services and domestic use.”


“So I would like to take this opportunity to inform President Museveni that however much I have been subjected to all forms of inhuman and degrading treatment I will never bow before you and I am going to continue moving with my head high,” charged the Mayor during a joint press briefing with other opposition leaders in Kampala on Thursday.


“I therefore stand firm on the ground that I am upholding people’s expectations because ever since I was elected the Lord Mayor I have never been accused of swindling not even a single coin from KCCA,” he added.


Presidency Minister, Frank Tumwebaze, said today Lukwago’s fate lies entirely in the hands of councillors who petitioned for his removal.


Mukono Municipality MP, Betty Nambooze said “targeting Lukwago is a threat to Local governments in the country.”


Kampala Central MP, Hon Muhammad Nsereko, said “power always belongs to the power and they are the one to decide whether the Mayor should go or not but not a few people.”


At the same function, former FDC leader, Dr. Kizza Besigye said “this report is not valid because the law provides that KCCA has to be complete with the elected professional bodies of the authority but the councilors petitioned for the removal of Lukwago when it was not fully instituted.”


He added: “So they have rushed in electing the professional representatives to the authority on to be able to dismiss Lukwago but I would like to assure you that the Lord Mayor is there to stay.”


Besigye further remarked that the Tribunal was biased considering that it at first rejected Lukwago’s personal lawyers, saying he should use legal advisors from KCCA.

He further announced that Lukwago will meet “councillors, stakeholders and the electorate” next week on Monday at Nakivubo” to forge a way forward in regard to the release of the report.
