Security has been beefed up at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) headquarters following a planned move by the ex-Mayor, Erias Lukwago to forcefully access the premises and resume work.


Anti-riot and Counter-Terrorism Police pitched camp at City Hall. According to sources, Lukwago had allegedly organized hooligans to storm KCCA.

All visitors to KCCA were subject to several checks by the police.

High court judge Justice Yasin Nyanzi granted Lukwago relief in a petition he filed against KCCA. Government clarified that Lukwago was no longer Kampala mayor and the relief granted to him by the court was taken by events.

29 KCCA councilors voted in favour of Lukwago’s impeachment. Only three were against.
