The outgoing KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi has petitioned High Court seeking an order to attach the salary of Kampala Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago, which is deposited on his account in Tropical Bank.
Musisi, who yesterday announced she will be resigning from her office in December, filed the request before High Court Executions Division, through her lawyers of Kasirye Byaruhanga and Co. Advocates.
She says she is owed up to Shs 47million by Mr Lukwago, arising from the costs awarded to her by the High Court months ago, which he failed to pay.
She now wants court to order for the Lord Mayor’s salary on his Tropical Bank account to be attached, for her to recover her money.
In July 2012, the High Court judge Eldard Mwangustya dismissed with costs Lukwago’s application in which he accused Musisi of overstepping her mandate and passing off as the city head by convening meetings with city traders.
Musisi then filed a bill of costs that was taxed at 47.5 million shillings; which money she says Lukwago has refused to pay despite repeated reminders.
This development comes just days after High Court set the hearing date for the case in which Lukwago is accusing Musisi and the Minster of Kampala of withholding his salary arrears of 536 million shillings.
