Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has applauded opposition councilors who joined hands with their National Resistance Movement (NRM) counterparts to throw out embattled Kampala city Lord Mayor Lukwago who was found to be incompetent. 

The President was on Thursday speaking at the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) football grounds at Lugogo shortly after touring various infrastructure development projects under KCCA as it marked its three years of existence. 

In November last year, in a special council meeting chaired by Kampala Minister, Frank Tumwebaze, 29 councillors voted in favour of removing Mr Lukwago. Three councillors opposed the motion.

This came after 17 councilors led by Bruhan Byarunga petitioned Frank Tumwebaze, the minister for Kampala seeking the removal of Lukwago saying he was unfit for the office of the lord mayor.

His controversial impeachment followed a report of the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) tribunal investigating abuse of office by Lukwago that found him guilty of misconduct, abuse of office and incompetence.

On opposing development in the city, particularly by ‘former’ Mayor Lukwago and Kiiza Besigye, the President said the Government had to use the law to step in and rescue the city from what he described anti development agents.

The President who was accompanied by the KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi, the Government Chief whip Hon. Justine Lumumba, the Minister for Ethics and Integrity Simon Lokodo and local leader spent over five hours touring various city roads that have been renovated and upgraded to bitumen standards under the Kampala Institutional Infrastructure Development Programme including; Mbogo Rd, Soweto Rd in Kabalagala, Kafumbe Mukasa Rd, Kabaka Njjagala Rd, Kimerard, Kalerwe- Ttula Rd, Kawempe- Mpererwe Rd, Bukoto – Kisaasi Rd, Kimera Rd, Sir Apollo Kagwa Rd, Hoima Road, Kansanga- Lukuli Rd etc.

  1. With 43 Million UGX monthly salary and massive facilitation from the Government, any KCCA boss would perform miracles!

    1. Yet she has performed no miracles at all! A mediocre, she is doing just the ordinary but people has lowered their expectation so low that they think she is doing wonders. Planting grass is ordinary, clinics are ordinary, having roads without pothole is ordinary – these are ordinary things – it is what is expected, Not being corrupt is extra-ordinary in Uganda. Telling the truth is more than extra-ordinary today. Musisi is an ordinary or thereabout girl. She is at best erratic and dishonest.

      1. I agree with you oparanyo entirely-I have talked to my friends who live in kampala and asked them what musisi has done exactly and they mention a few fountains and grass lanes between roads! all for collossal sums of money -kampala is still a very dark city, with potholes and the poorest drainage only second to one of kabale, and musisi continues to draw 43 m and other benefits from taxi payers and causing confusion in the city as she transforms bids museveni calling and turns herslef slowly into some god.

  2. Is the first citizen aware that Justice Mugambe of the high court declared the impeachment null and void’? If so, then this gentleman is in total contempt of court, PERIOD. If the 4th arm of government is not ready to inform the executive, then they are also making themselves culpable.

  3. I’ve heard from the grape vine that these councillors were actually give $1000 in brown envelopes as an incentive or call it bribe,,,,,,,,to kick the Lord mayor out of office.
