Today’s meeting was summoned by Lukwago to receive a report by a committee tasked to interface with Frank Tumwebaze, the minister in charge of Kampala on the affairs of the authority. The meeting was also expected to consider the ordinance regulating the Matatu [taxi] business, Kampala development plan and functioning of the authority. Shortly after the meeting failed to take off, Lukwago said he was going to consult his colleague on the way forward. Lukwago expressed doubts on the authenticity of the letter since it was written on June 06th yet the tribunal members took oath on Monday.
He also explained that under the right procedure the authority meeting can only be stopped by the Kampala minister, Attorney general or solicitor general.
Bernard Luyiga, the councilor of Makerere University who is said to have delivered the letter to the authority says that he also received a copy just like all the other councilors. He however, backed the decision to halt the meeting saying that issues that were on the agenda are part of those in the petition against Lukwago that is before the tribunal. But Joseph Lwanga Mujuzi, the representative of Lubaga division says that the decision to block the meeting is an extension of the battle of supremacy between the lord mayor and KCCA executive director. He asked the electorate under the authority to consider recalling some of their councilors because they have failed to serve their interests. By the time of filing this story, Lukwago was still held up in a meeting with councilors allied to his camp.
