KAMPALA - Hundreds of Forum for Democratic Change supporters have convened at Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago's residence to witness the launch of his achievement since he attained office in 2016.

Accompanied by wife Zawedde, Lukwago said there are people who are misinterpreting the Mayors mandates to mislead people, saying he has not performed to their expectations.

Lukwago noted that he has supervised top leaders and influenced a number of policy makers for the development of the city.


According to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Act, 2019, the Lord Mayor is, among others, required to initiate strategies and programs for the development of the city.

Lukwago noted that he has supervised top leaders and influenced a number of policy makers for the development of the city.

"I led the formulation of KCCA Markets ordinance which seeks to provide for licensing, regulation and management of markets," he stated.

To promote Kampala as a tourism hub, Lukwago said the authority under his political leadership has erected different wild animal statues around the city inscribed with words that direct citizens to where they can be found.

Lukwago used the event to express interest in taking over the mayoral seat for a third term.


The Mayor said he has fought ‘cartels' and city businessmen, who want to buy public properties including markets like St. Balikudembe (Owino) market and public parks.

Mukono municipality Member of Parliament and Kampala shadow Minister, Betty Bambooze, said they are not operating in normal times as they are at political war.


"Different opposition forces are vying for one goal so there is no need to terrorize each other. If the government can not avail peace to us, we should keep it within ourselves as the opposition.

She said the politics they want today should not be of governance but that of resistance.

The event was graced by Members of Parliament, Division Mayors, and councilors among other people.
