FRANK Tumwebaze, the Minister in charge of Kampala, asked High Court in Kampala on Monday to dismiss Erias Lukwago’s application for judicial reviews of the Catherine Bamugemereire tribunal report.

Tumwebaze said the application has been overtaken by so many events.

He said his request is limited in his defence to Lukwago’s application for Judicial review in which he is seeking to quash the Kampala Capital City Authority Tribunal Report that led to his controversial impeachment last year.

He said Lukwago’s practical application for judicial review is scheduled for Wednesday before Justice Yasin Nyanzi.

“The application has been overtaken by events since the applicant was dully removed from office on November 25 2013. I have been also advised by my counsel that the process to remove the applicant as the Lord Mayor was valid,” Tumwebaze explained.

He noted that Lukwago’s application is bad in law, premature and added that it raises no relevant grounds for grants of remedies that he is seeking

Justine Nyanzi has since come out to say the interim injunction given by Deputy Registrar Fred Waninda on his orders still stands until this very application is heard and determined.
