Tension As Lukwago Supporters Riot

site geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>Lukwago was removed from office on Monday morning by a meeting of councillors after they received the KCCA Tribunal report implicating the Mayor on charges of abuse of office, remedy misconduct and incompetence.

The High Court had earlier issued an injunction restraining Minister Frank Tumwebaze from conducting a meeting to impeach the Mayor until the main application is disposed off.

Tumwebaze later said he did not receive the injunction.

When news reached Lukwago’s supporters in downtown Kampala, many rose up in arms before hurling stones at police.


The riots have paralysed business and grounded traffic in some sections of Kampala.

Some of the affected areas include Kissekka market, Gadaffi Road and Sir Apollo Kaggwa.

More details and pictures will be posted as events unfold.
