Ugandan opposition Members of Parliament (MPs) have called upon Ugandans to stand up for their rights by fighting against what they term a ‘dictatorial regime’ that has disregarded the will of the people.

The MPs were commenting on the events that took place at City Hall when Kampala City Council Authority councillors met to impeach city Mayor Erias Lukwago. The MPs, most of whom are members of the shadow cabinet, said that the problem is not KCCA its Executive Director Jennifer Musisi or the Minister for Kampala Frank Tumwebaze but President Yoweri Museveni.

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and Serere district MP Alice Alaso urged Ugandans to focus on the core of the problem which she says is Museveni whose ‘dictatorship’ is plain for all to see.

Alaso said that Museveni’s ‘dictatorship’ started with the elimination of all the country’s institutions and has now moved onto disregarding the will of the people.

Opposition Chief Whip and Kasese Woman MP, Winnie Kiiza said Museveni has disenfranchised Ugandans of their voting rights by brutally removing the mayor they dully elected.

She urged to withdraw their mandate from him since he has lost credibility.

Shadow Minister for the Presidency and Masaka Municipality MP Mathias Mpuuga said that Tumwebaze as the Minister for the Presidency should be a reflection of the office adding that Ugandans cannot continue to be under an ‘insane’ regime which disregards the law.

Ndorwa East MP Wilfred Niwagaba, who was expelled from the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) Party for not toeing the party line, said yesterday’s ugly scenes were enough to show that Museveni does not care about Ugandans but his selfish interest of consolidating power.

Jinja Municipality East MP Paul Mwiru said that as opposition, they will not struggle over what happened at city hall yesterday saying that nothing legal took place and Lukwago is still Kampala’s legitimate mayor.

He added that it is now upon the judiciary to prove its relevance to Ugandans.

Lukwago was impeached yesterday after 29 out of the 34 councillors voted against his stay in office regardless of a court injunction on the process.

  1. As usual the opposition is missing the point. Lukwago got himself fired because he was too busy acting like Besigye’s house boy. If he had attended to the wishes of the citizens who elected him he would still be mayor. How does a whole mayor of the capital spend all his time running after a 3 time failure of the presidential race? Just unbelievable?

    1. u r missing a point too, so u r convinced that all factor held constant, Besigye failed three times! Even in 2006?

    1. no judiciary nymore , lukwago was like mao , matembe, etc dat matebe & co weya in da house dat altered da term limits no matter weda dey supported it, lukwago was in da hse dat brought kcca, & he stupidly came 2 stand 4 mayorship expecting it smooth bt he is nw nursing injuries physically & politically.

  2. Advice to our neighbors the Tanzanians, please take your time to analyse your neighbors b4 you sign up for political integration. As you have seen with Lukwago in Ug, the resent of of the ICC in Kenya and Rwanda’s involvement in Congo affairs, TZ might be the only country that rescues us when things go bad here. These guys are not trust worthy please do not join them. Yet!! Once we sort ourselves out you may find us better partners but not with this lot.

  3. this is evident enough to show that M7 is the second born next to Amin, Whatever is taking place, took place on Amin’s regime, so what are we waiting for!!!!!!!!, besides Lukwago, looking for a better way for Ugandans in Kampala to live well, M7, is after Ugandans to live in a messed life. No Jobs, High Institution Tuition, Selling off all National Properties etc

    1. we don’t need Mayors that use power given to them by the people to individually use that power to politic and improve their popularity and political careers.he did nothing for Kampala…all i remember he was on the side of politicians walking to work causing havoc to our businesses in Kampala.He has brought shame to Lawyers…he was all words of criticism and nothing for development of Kampala.We need intelligent people in power not mere noise makers…Lukwago should take time to decide what he wants to be a noise maker or a politician with intellect.

  4. Lukwago’s only mistake was concentrating in Besigye’s battles. For God’s sake this is kampala a city of all not some district HQ. If he concentrated on mobilising for development it would be better. Museveni should not be a point of discussion always, you make the man feel too important. Ignore Museveni and do your work he may even not notice your presence. If you continue like this, your health will take toll on you.

    1. truth be told who do u see capable at this point in time to take over from him ? i don’t see any hope with our opposition coz i think they are equally the same if not worst. may be kadaga but she does not seem interested
