Besigye, Lukwago Plan Massive Kampala Rally

erectile geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>Former FDC leader, Dr Kizza Besigye, told Chimpreports on Thursday evening that Lukwago would meet “all stakeholders, electorate and supporters” at Nakivubo next week to forge a way forward after he was implicated by the KCCA tribunal.

Sources have told this website that majority of opposition MPs including Betty Nambooze, Mohammed Nsereko, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, Moses Kasibante and Nandala Mafabi are expected to lead processions of supporters to Nakivubo as part of a wide plan to reject Lukwago’s ousting.

It is hugely feared that such moves would spark off bloody confrontations with security forces.

Police, which banned political gatherings in the heart of Kampala, recently clashed with Lukwago’s supporters as he drove in a convoy to the KCCA tribunal in Kololo.

Heavily-armed military police personnel and anti-riot cops were deployed to crush the unrest, leaving a trail of destruction.


The bloody clashes led to the closure of Kissekka market which had turned into the epicenter of the turbulence.

Besigye said Lukwago “is here to stay” and that all “machinations aimed at removing him from office will be resisted.”

Nsereko also noted that government should prepare for the “fiercest storm” should it continue with moves to have the mayor out of office.

Minister for Presidency, Frank Tumwebaze yesterday said the councillors would decide whether to continue serving under Lukwago after he was found guilty of incompetence, misconduct or misbehavior and abuse of office by the KCCA Tribunal led by Catherine Bamugemereire.

Asked whether he would apologise for his mistakes as requested by President Museveni, Lukwago charged: “I will never bow before President Museveni. Never.”
