The Minister in charge of the Presidency and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) is to brief the NRM caucus the government’s position over the impeached Kampala Lord Mayor.  


Government Chief Whip Justine Kasule Lumumba told Vision Online that MPs need to be briefed on the KCCA developments. The Tuesday morning meeting took place at Parliament conference hall.  On the agenda were the GMO Bill and the UMEME contract among others items discussed.

Government insists that Erias Lukwago is no longer Kampala Mayor.

Justice Yasin Nyanzi of the High Court on Thursday granted Lukwago a temporary injunction against Kampala Capital City authority (KCCA).  In his ruling, Nyanzi said an interim court injunction issued on Monday by acting registrar of the court, Fred Waninda, still stands.

Nyanzi said the interim injunction would be in place until Lukwago’s main application seeking a judicial review of the KCCA tribunal report is determined.

The tribunal headed by Justice Catherine Bamugemereire had among others, found Lukwago guilty of abuse of office, incompetence and misconduct. The tribunal was constituted by Kampala Minister Frank Tumwebaze, following a petition by 17 councilors.
