Ousted Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has run to court to stop Electoral Commission from organizing the Kampala Mayoral by-election.


EC released a programme last week which indicated that the nominations of the candidates will take place in Kampala between March 31 and April 1.

But Lukwago wants the election stopped because he says he is still the Lord Mayor and any attempt to fill the position of Lord Mayor of Kampala is an illegality.

Lukwago’s lawyer, Abdu Katuntu confirmed the development. “We have filed an interim injunction in the High Court,” he said.

The position of the Kampala Lord Mayor fell vacant following the controversial impeachment of Lukwago in November last year.
