“Denying him permission to leave his house is unlawful and violating his rights,” said Katuntu.


He further responded to remarks made by Kampala Metropolitan Police Commander, Andrew Kaweesi, who emphasized that Lukwago would not be allowed to leave his home, saying, “he is misusing his authority to deny Lukwago freedom and he is acting with impunity.”


The lawyers further condemned government for undermining court that had declared Lukwago as the Lord Mayor.


“Government should respect its arm –judiciary,” said Katuntu.


Katuntu condemned the Attorney General Peter Nyombi for defying court orders and declaring thatthat Lukwago was no longer the Lord Mayor.


“Cases of the law are argued out in court not through press conferences like Nyombi did. In fact court decisions cannot be over turned through press conferences.


“Government did this out of anger after being defeated in court and are therefore retaliating for losing the court case,” Katuntu continued.


The lawyers further noted that preparations have been finalised to petition court again to clarify about the position of the Lord Mayor.


“We shall petition court over defying its orders by government,” explained Sseggona.


TALKS


Meanwhile, Lukwago denied allegations that negotiations between himself and government to solve wrangles in the city are ongoing: “I have not got any formal writing or call about negotiations because I am still in prison and there is no way a prisoner like me can enter into negotiations before being released.”


He continued: “I am fed up of this situation. I have a family to cater for but I have been stopped from going to work. If there are plans for negotiations, they should follow court orders and reinstate me back to my office and I will then welcome them,“ Lukwago stressed.


He further noted that they are looking into assessment of damage caused by government during this fracas where he said he would be looking for compensation.
