Kampala Lord Mayor elect Erias Lukwago and Division Councillors have Monday been sworn in at Kampala Capital City Authority. Minister for Security Mary Okurut handed Lukwago the instruments of power.

Lukwago, whose exploits have mostly put him on collision course with the Central Government, was controversially thrown out of office during his last term following several skirmishes with Kampala Capital City Authority boss Jeniffer Musisi over management control.

They clashed over everything, including UTODA operations, trade licensing fees, garbage collection, councillors, among others.

After swearing in, Lukwago gave a passionate acceptance speech, outlining what has gone wrong and what needs to be attended to.

Lukwago’s swearing-in that had originally been set for June 1 was postponed on the advice of police citing inadequate security as most of their personnel were engaged during the state visits of the presidents of South Korea and Turkey, and also the hectic Martyrs’ Day celebrations.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango said police had cleared 15 vehicles for Lukwago’s entourage to the swearing-in ceremony.
