It remains unclear if Lukwago will be able to move out of the house considering that it is heavily guarded by Police.

Chimp Corp, Kenneth Kazibwe says that there is much anticipation now that the MPs have arrived.

How events unfolded

Today morning, police deployed heavily-armed anti-riot police in strategic places in Kampala and vowed not to allow Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago to access his offices.

Deputy Police publicist, Patrick Onyango said that Lukwago would not be allowed anywhere near the City Hall.

By 9:00am, there was commotion in downtown Kampala, with vendors who had earlier been chased returning to the streets to sell bananas and other items.

Lukwago then spoke out condemning the KCCA executive director, Jennifer Musisi’s closure of KCCA offices, saying that “it is illegal and regrettable”.

Lukwago further condemned the police for surrounding his place and preventing him from moving to City Hall.

He also called upon Kampalans to join him tomorrow at 9:00am in a community cleaning exercise.

The mayor’s supporters have since displayed banana stems and leaves all over the streets to welcome and escort him back to City Hall which was closed last night due to insecurity of staff.

In a related event, vendors who had been evicted from the streets have returned to downtown Kampala where they are selling merchandise.
