The Minister for Presidency and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Frank Tumwebaze on June 6 announced he had setup a three-man committee to carryout investigations into the petition by KCCA councilors seeking the ousting of Lukwago.

Prior to this commission 17 Kampala Capital City Authority councilors had filed a petition seeking for the ousting of the mayor for alleged misconduct, abuse of office and incompetence.

“Pursuant to section 12 of the Kampala Capital City Act, 2010, and after due consultations with the Attorney General and Chief Justice of Uganda I have appointed the following persons to constitute the Tribunal that shall inquire into the allegations against the Lord Mayor,” said Tumwebaze.


The tribunal has Hon. Lady Justice Catherine Bamugemereire as the chairperson, Mrs. J.A Ocaya Lakidi and Mr Alfred Okello Oryem as members.

Lukwago contends the petition was instigated by his nemesis and KCCA Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi.

The pair’s wrangling has affected the performance and service delivery of KCCA.

“I want all of you to show solidarity with me during my appearance before the committee. Everything I do is in the interest of my voters,” Lukwago told thousands of residents of Mulago and Wandegeya areas.

“My election as Mayor was not easy. There were so many road blocks on the way including attempts to rig the election in favour of an NRM candidate. The Electoral Commission also tried to deregister me because of the spelling mistakes in my name on the academic transcript.”

Lukwago said despite holding a ceremonial position he has never been invited to officiate any ceremony in Kampala.

Lukwago’s announcement points to the possibility of huge rallies in Kampala which were last year banned by police.

He was accompanied by companied by a number of politicians including MPs Hon Moses Kasibante, Betty Nambooze, Muwanga Kivumbi and Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda among others.
