Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago

At least 26 councillors have vowed to drag Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago to the disciplinary committee, citing misconduct over his corruption allegations against them.

Through their representatives Mr Bernard Luyiga (Makerere University), Bruhan Byaruhanga (Kyambogo University) and Godfrey Assimwe (Lubaga Division), the councillors accuse Mr Lukwago of tainting their image claiming that they were bribed by the executive director’s office to boycott the meeting last week.

“It is high time the Lord Mayor was called to order, the disciplinary committee should take action against him. He should prove the bribe allegations he put against us,” Mr Luyiga said in Kampala last week, adding, “Should we also assume that he bribed the four councillors who attended the first meeting?”

The KCCA meeting flopped after Mr Lukwago, who doubles as the authority speaker, failed to realise the required quorum. Deputy Lord Mayor Sulaiman Kidandala described Mr Luyiga and Byaruhanga’s position as a two-manshow which lacks other councillors’ back up.

He said they were fronting personal interests under the guise of representing other councillors, adding that they were from “only universities”.
