The election for the 4 councilors comes only 9 days before Kampala Minister Frank Tumwebaze presents the KCCA Tribunal findings to the council.

The councilors will then have a chance to determine on whether to impeach or exonerate Kampala mayor Erias Lukwago of the three grounds he is liable of, which are incompetence, abuse of office and misconduct.

When Lukwago challenged the councilors petition to minister Tumwebaze in courts, Justice Vincent Zehurikiriire ruled that even if the Lord Mayor was found guilty, no action would be taken against him before the KCCA was fully constituted.

Observers and some opposition leaders pointed out that Tumwebaze was rushing efforts to have the council in full quorum before he presents the report before it on November 28.

By midday, the following candidates had been nominated.

Uganda Medical Association:

-Jakeno Oketch Ojony

– Nyabwana Denson

Uganda Institute Of Professional Engineers

-Karuma Kagyina

-Erias Bahanda

Uganda society of Architects

-Verna Mbabazi Bainganiza

-Sarah Barungi

Uganda Law Society

– Kandiho Frank

-Magara Harriet Grace.

While the election process was supposed to be held on multiparty basis, all the candidates chose to come on an independent ticket.

The entire process is under full oversight of the Electoral Commission boss, Eng Badru Kiggundu.
