“We as the Democratic Party took up a decision to rally behind the Lord Mayor and since these councillors acted in total defiance of the party decision, they have to face all necessary disciplinary measures,” Ssewungu charged.

DP last week warned Councillors against being part of plans to oust Lukwago, warning of grave consequences.

It appears the DP Councillors decided to take a risk to vote against their party’s wishes thus kicking out the embattled Mayor.

Sewungu, however, attacked the Minister in charge of Kampala; Frank Tumwebaze for defying court orders to organise a meeting of councillors to impeach the Mayor.

“Tumwebaze should be held for court contempt and we are organizing a move to arrest him if police falls short of taking necessary action against him,” Ssewungu added.

Justice Yasin Nyanzi on Monday ruled in the High Court that the council proceedings that led to the impeachment of Lukwago were null and void.

However, Tumwebaze said the court order was a forgery.

Ssewungu also condemned the manner in which police mistreated several Members of Parliament, lawyers and some councilors who had gone to attend deliberations at the City Hall.

He called upon the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Gen. Kale Kayihura to “come out and arrest all police officers who were involved in such inhumane acts.”
