All parties to the case including Attorney General Peter Nyombi’s lawyers were fully represented, contrary to reports that the government lawyer received the injunction after Lukwago’s ‘impeachment.’

The latest development ends the legal gymnastics and political jostling touched off by the council meeting’s resolution to oust Lukwago.

The Mayor had earlier been found liable for incompetence, abuse of office and misconduct by a Tribunal instituted by government following complaints from councillors.

On the other hand, Lukwago accused KCCA Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi of arrogance, corruption, abuse of office and conspiring with government officials to bring him down.

Government insisted that Lukwago would not be allowed at KCCA anymore and that he had been officially removed from office.

The Mayor’s supporters quickly took to the streets in protest of his impeachment, leading to violent street battles with security forces.

Lukwago says he will soon convene a meeting with all stakeholders to forge a way forward for the city.
