“This left me wondering whether the government is still protecting the rule of law which they fought for in the early 1980’s,” Lukwago noted.

Lukwago further remarked that “the President and his colleagues went to the bush in the 1980’s to fight for the rule of constitutionalism which they are now violating”.

Lukwago also reiterated the recent statements made by the Prime Minister of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga, about the court order which was stopping the minister for Kampala Hon. Frank Tumwebaze from chairing the council meeting which was impeaching him.

On November 29, 2013 the Minister for Kampala Hon Frank Tumwebaze chaired a council meeting where 29 councillors voted in favour of removal of the Lord Mayor.


While the three Shifra Lukwago, Aidah Nakuya and Sulaiman Kidandala voted against the impeachment.

But as the voting was going on, councillor Allan Ssewanyana was thrown out as he tried to present to the council a court order which the Minister rejected as invalid.

From vote of the majority, it was agreed that Lukwago was no longer the Lord Mayor of Kampala; therefore, the Minister declared the seat vacant and called upon Lukwago to return back to the Council all property he had acquired as Lord Mayor.

Later on, the high court judge, Yasin Nyanzi, ruled that the order he had issued earlier stopping the impeachment of the Lord Mayor on Monday November 25 still stood.

This meant that Lukwago still held the office of the Lord Mayor because the council meeting was declared unlawful.

Later, on November 29, 2013 the Prime Minister, Hon Amama Mbabazi, minsiter of Internal Affairs, Gen Aronda Nyakairima together with KCCA Executive director, Jennifer Musisi, held a meeting at the offices of the Prime Minister at Parliament.

The Prime Minister and the Attorney General, Peter Nyombi maintained their stand that Lukwago was no longer Mayor because the court order came in when the council had already impeached him.

Gen Aronda then warned Erias Lukwago over organising the city cleaning exercise arguing that in case he wanted to clean the city, “he should ask for permission from the executive Director”.

Ever since, Lukwago has been put under a careful watch and many are still wondering whether he still holds his seat at City Hall or not.

Meanwhile, former FDC President Dr Kiiza Besigye who was among the guests at this wedding vowed to “continue fighting for the liberation of this country. Not even the fear of imprisonment will let me step down”.

“Imprisonment or detention is among the prices we have to pay towards the restoration of democracy in Uganda,” Besigye stressed.
