Lucima said UPC believes that there is no vacant seat at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and that Erias Lukwago is still the Lord Mayor as provided within the law.

“The court declared Lukwago’s impeachment both illegal and illegitimate providing that the commission convening a council meeting against the Lord Mayor was too illegal; we can’t involve ourselves in the process when the court process into the case are still underway,” Lucima observed.

Lucima added that the move by EC to illegal replace Lukwago has openly exposed that the commission is used as a puppet of the regime, its biasness and lack of independence but being driven by the ruling party.

“We don’t care even if NRM stages independent candidates against their party flag bearer and at the end the flag bearer declared a winner; we are ready to fight that the elections don’t take place.”


Lucima, therefore, called upon all Ugandans to simply ignore the by-election process and stand against it and join hands to ensure that the rule of law is restored in the country.

UPC has now joined the other opposition political parties; DP and FDC to denounce the April 17, by-elections for the Kampala Lord Mayor replacing Erias Lukwago who is still battling the case in courts of law.
