“I welcome the ruling and the order of the Court of Appeal staying implementation of the earlier order given by the High Court judge until our substantive appeal is heard and disposed off,” Tumwebaze told Chimpreports on Monday afternoon.

“As I have said then, while we respected Justice Mugambe’s ruling, we disagreed with it fundamentally on basic principles of law and natural justice,” he added.

“I maintain the impeachment of the former Lord Mayor was done in accordance with the law and we shall prove with evidence that whatever actions we did as the government officers commanded by the KCCA law to act, was all in accordance with the law and that we were executing our statutory obligations and nothing else.”


Lukwago had earlier today invited Muslim clerics to pray for him as he resumes work at City Hall.

The ruling came a few hours after the prayer ceremony held at Lukwago’s office.

Tumwebaze expressed optimism that “my friend Elias Lukwago and his allies in the opposition will respect the ruling of this appellant court, as they always want others to, and prepare for a full scale legal contest, without trying to seek quick wins through legal shortcuts.”
