The government spokesperson Mr. Ofwono Opondo has said that the Kampala City Lord mayor should be looking for the exist button in the political arena.
Speaking while appearing on NBS Frontline on Thursday night, Ofwono said that Lukwago lost track and no longer politically relevant.
These comments follow the Lord Mayor’s bid to sue the Minister of Kampala Hon. Betty Kamya for sabotaging his powers at the authority.
“Lord Mayor is trying to create red-herring. There should be no reason why a good intentioned leader objects to this proposal. Lord Mayor Lukwago is coming off as a petty perennial politician”. Ofwono Opondo added.
Earlier this week, the High court in Kampala summoned Minister Kamya.
According to the court order issued by Justice Henrietta Wolayo, Kamya was directed to appear before it on 24th April 2018 to be cross-examined on allegations that she is interfering with the executive powers of the Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago.
This was a request by Ssalongo Elias Lukwago through his lawyer Chrysostom Katumba who described Kamya moves as illegal since she lacks people’s mandate.
On issuing the summon, judge Wolayo first asked both Kamya and Lukwago to first exhaust avenues of settling their differences out of court with the help of a court-appointed mediator which all have to be done before 24th/April 2018.
