“Lukwago will not be allowed to carry out that cleaning exercise because he is no longer the Lord Mayor,” Aronda pointed out during a security meeting at the President’s Office in Kampala on Friday afternoon.

He further noted that “if he wants to continue with his exercise as a citizen of Uganda, he will have to seek for permission from KCCA”.

Aronda seems to confirm government’s position that Lukwago remains impeached despite a court order directing Presidency Minister, Frank Tumwebaze not to act on the findings of the KCCCA Tribunal until the main application is heard and disposed off.

High Court Judge Yassin Nyanzi ruled on Thursday that the deliberations of the meeting in which Lukwago was impeached were null and void as the court had already issued an injunction against the activity.

Speaking from his home in Wakaligga Rubaga today, Lukwago announced that he will hit the streets tomorrow at 9:00am and engage in a cleaning exercise to close the gaps created by the absence of KCCA officials who were off duty the whole day.

According to the master plan, Lukwago is to be joined by his supporters to clean up the city which has been declared to be filthy beyond repair.

Lukwago says he must clean Kampala

Addressing journalists on Friday at his residence in Kampala, Lukwago explained that the city is in a sorry state which he said needed all people to come up and clean it.

“Assessors indicated that the city generates over 2500 tonnes of garbage every day and therefore on Saturday we are going to move to all areas of the city and clean it,” explained Lukwago.

He noted that the sorry state of the city would lead to a break out of diseases like cholera and therefore noted that this has to be prevented by cleaning it.

Lukwago further condemned the manner in which Jennifer Musisi had conducted herself and closed business at the City Hall and noted that it was an act of impunity by the latter.

“She has no power to close down a public office because she is just the head of public service at the Authority,” stressed Lukwago.

“I call upon all well wishers and city dwellers to join us as we clean our city. All those with spades hoes and garbage trucks should join us in the struggle to keep the city clean,” he added.

The Opposition Chief Whip in Parliament Winnie Kiiza called upon people in the city to dedicate at least one hour every day to clean the city.

“We are together with the Lord Mayor and we shall clean our city to get rid of the garbage,” stressed Kiiza.
