Kampala Lord Mayor Salongo Erias Lukwago who grabbed a resounding victory in Wednesday’s polls is not in a celebratory mood just yet.

Lukwago was declared winner in the wee hours of Thursday at the main tally center at Lugogo, salve http://cloud.ca/wp-admin/includes/user.php where he polled 176, nurse http://danielborda.net/wp-includes/class-wp-ajax-response.php 637 votes. He was followed by Daniel Kazibwe who managed a distant 49,366 votes while Kikungwe trailed with 7,759.

This was just above 75% of the vote from only 82% of the polling stations from which he was declared winner.

And while his performance surpassed what he had projected, the Lord Mayor said he had no intentions of holding celebrations.

This he said was due to the “debacle we suffered as a nation during the sham presidential election.”

Lukwago said also, that he was still dispirited by the incarceration of his friend Col Dr Kizza Besigye who police is locking up at his home to prevent him from accessing the city center.

He said however, that he was grateful to the electorate in Kampala for the “unreserved trust and honor” bestowed upon him in the polls.

“It’s quite a humbling experience and a historic moment that I will always treasure in my life,” he said.

Meanwhile in neighboring Mukono Municipality, fellow democrat Hon Betty Nambooze Bakireke who was reelected back to Parliament said she would not celebrate but mourn her victory.

“Many people are asking why this time around I am not touring my constituency celebrating victory,” she said.

“There won’t be any celebrations in Mukono Municipality this time because in the current environment there is nothing to celebrate. We shall mourn with the rest of the country.”
