Only a handful of journalists were allowed into the City Hall while others were locked outside the main entrance.

Latif Ssebaggala and Ken Lukyamuzi were bundled and forcefully thrown out of the KCCA gate by police who had tightened security with five patrol cars.

“We are fed up with impunity and dictatorship here. How can the Lord Mayor be impeached and MPs are being pushed out of the City Hall when police are just looking on,” exclaimed Ssebaggala

Meanwhile, at Kisekka market, police had to fire teargas to disperse rioters who were hurling objects at security personnel in protests against Lukwago’s impeachment.


In an interview with Chimpreports, Sam Omara who commanded today’s police operations, explained that police “had taken over security of the downtown area and no one is allowed in the area until further notice.”


The senior police chief added: “I don’t want to see any politician here. This place is now under my control and whoever uses force to enter here will face it rough as we shall also use force to take him away,” he stressed.
