Uganda: Tribunal finds City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago guilty, wants him kicked out
Kampala – City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago is guilty of misconduct, abuse of office and incompetence, the tribunal instituted by Kampala Minister Frank Tumwebaze to probe the mayor’s conduct has ruled.
The report, handed over to Mr Tumwebaze Thursday morning in Kampala, gives the minister 14 days to kick start the process to eject Mr Lukwago from his office.
Mr Lukwago last week said he is resigned to being kicked out of his seat, and that he has no option but to prepare for by-elections.
Mr Lukwago’s two-and-half year tenure at City Hall has been characterized by disagreements with the technical team led by the City Authority Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi. Among other things, the two have disagreed on how projects are funds are to be managed.
The tribunal was chaired by High Court Judge, Catherine Bamugemireire.
