Erias Lukwago Office Reopened

The Mayor's office at City Hall has been reopened for refurbishment

The office of the Lord Mayor has been reopened as Kampala City awaits Erias Lukwago’s inauguration.

The office was closed four years ago after a presidential inquiry found Lukwago liable for incompetence.

The toppling of Lukwago followed clashes with his councillors who accused him of dodging meetings and dictatorial tendencies.

Lukwago’s rise to power discomforted the ruling government as he continuously hobnobbed with opposition leader, generic http://daylesfordartshow.com.au/wp-includes/theme.php Dr Kizza Besigye.

The two jointly held anti-government rallies in Kampala city, often clashing with security forces.

His removal from office was a matter of time.

Despite negotiations involving NRM leaders to resolve the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) political gridlock, councillors remained opposed to Lukwago’s return to office as city mayor.

The matter was taken to the Court of Appeal which has never made a decision.

It was not until recently that Lukwago was re-elected Mayor, Kampala.

On Tuesday, Lukwago announced: “At the long last the Lord Mayor’s Parlour has been reopened.”

He said general cleaning and refurbishment is currently in progress.

“You will be updated on the programme for the official re-entry and resumption of duties,” he told his fans before praising him for their “unwavering support.”
