Lady Justice Lydia Mugambe went ahead and ruled that the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago resumes his office adding that he was wrongly impeached by the KCCA tribunal and the Council.

In the letter, the AG states that he intends to appeal against the high court decision and has obtained an interim stay of Justice Mugambe’s orders.

“The purpose of the Court of Appeal ruling is that no elections should be conducted until determination of the appeal. The purpose of this letter, therefore, is to advise that your office suspends the conduct of Kampala mayoral by-election until the court orders otherwise,” Nyombi writes.

After Justice Kavuma’s verdict on Monday, which ordered Lukwago to vacate office, the EC promised to first seek legal guidance before proceeding with the electoral process.

It appears that Lukwago has now run to the Supreme Court where his lawyers spent most of the day yesterday trying to secure a hearing that they hope will overturn Justice Kavuma’s injunction.
