Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago drags Minister Betty Kamya to court , accuses her of infringing on his powers
In the petition filed on Monday, Lukwago seeks orders to quash Kamya's decision regarding the legality of council meetings and another decision that subjects all his travels as the Lord Mayor to a "ministerial permit "

Kampala Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago has dragged the Minister for Kampala, Beti Kamya, to Court accusing her of interfering with his executive duties by illegally passing herself off as the political head of the city whereas she is not.

Erias Lukwago went to court accusing the Minister of Kampala Beti Kamya of interfering with his executive powers.

 

Lukwago claims his mandate to serve as the duly elected mayor of the city has been usurped by Kamya who even took a decision on the 23rd January 2018  to suspend council meetings where deliberations and decisions on how to govern the city are made.

 

According to court documents, Kamya halted council meetings on grounds that they are illegal and no longer relevant to the city, a decision that Lukwago describes as irrational and unreasonable.

 

In the petition filed on Monday, Lukwago seeks orders to  quash  Kamya's decision regarding the legality of council meetings and another  decision that subjects  all his travels as the Lord Mayor to a "ministerial permit "

 

Lukwago claims such decisions are an infringement and abuse of his rights and freedoms.

Lukwago further seeks orders to compel Kamya to put in place a metropolitan physical planning committee as required by the KCCA Act arguing that the absence of this committee negatively impacts him in the performance of his duties of developing and strategizing for the city.
