He re-affirmed that Lukwago’s office had been locked and that there was no council business since even his would-be deputy Lord Mayor, Mr. Sulaiman Kidandala, is not legally fit to take over.
“So, no Lord Mayor, no deputy Lord Mayor, no problem; after all the [Kampala] Minister is there, the Executive director, myself the RCC, Councillors and staff are all there and everything is moving on smoothly,” he said.
“Though the Council is non-functional, the Councillors are nonetheless conducting their businesses down in their constituencies, meeting with their people, filing their problems and bringing them back to the council as we all wait for the next step.”
Upon Lukwago’s impeachment on November 25, Government has since written to the Electoral Commission seeking to have the vacant Lord Mayor’s seat filled, which has in turn expressed readiness to arrange for a fresh poll within the legal required 6 months.
Three days after throwing him out, High Court Justice Yasin Nynzi accepted the Lord Mayor’s application for judicial review of the procedures and findings of the KCCA Tribunal which recommended his impeachment.
In the meantime, the court ruled that Lukwago continues serving as the Lord Mayor pending hearing of his main application.
RCC Hashaka, however, described this as ‘an accidental ruling,” basing on the circumstances under which Lukwago’s lawyers are said to obstruct his impeachment by the KCCA Council.
“Court knows clearly that his lawyers served the council with a fake injunction. You saw how Councillor Alan Sewanyana was jumping tables trying to beat the Minister, and distract proceedings. He was only trying to buy time for the actual order to be brought in at 10am. But all this was a flop and the council successfully impeached Lukwago before the court order, and this cannot be reversed.”
At the very genesis of the mistrust between the Lord Mayor and KCCA Executive Director, Jenifer Musisi, Mpimbaza vowed to deploy every possible means to reconcile the two giants, and get them to work together for the development of the city.
This, he is to do, through his ‘Always be Tolerant Organisation’ [ABETO], which works to bring together bickering people and guide them to work mutually for society’s common good.
“I tried as much as I could to bring these two at a roundtable, only to realise later that Mr Lukwago was a conceited man, never willing to take counsel from anyone. When the meeting was called, only Musisi showed up, while he said that he had nothing to reconcile about with the ED.”
Meanwhile, City Lord Mayor is still lounging in his compound with no where to go since he cant access his office to resume mayoral duties.
