The Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, has filed an application, seeking court orders restraining the Kampala Minister, Beti Kamya, from issuing directives, while purporting to act as political head of Kampala. The application was filed in the High Court civil division today.
Business hit a snag at City Hall on 25th January, when Beti Kamya wrote to Lukwago saying council meetings he has been convening are null and void. The meetings that Kamya referred to are “resumed meeting(s),” which are a continuation of previous authority meeting(s).
This prompted KCCA technocrats to walk out of the meeting arguing that they could not participate in null and void council meetings. As a result, two council meetings have been cancelled due to the absence of technical wing officials.
In his application, Lukwago seeks “an order quashing the decision of the Minister of Kampala Capital City Authority” contained in the 23rd January letter, regarding the legality of authority meetings. He further seeks “an order of prohibition restraining, stopping and preventing the Minister for Kampala Capital City Authority from passing off or purporting to act as the political head of Kampala,” the application reads.
