The Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has attributed the current crisis in Kampala Capital City between Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and government leaning Executive Director Jeniffer Musisi on the KCCA Act which creates many power centers.
The clergyman giving his Christmas message on Tuesday at his residence in Lubaga, Lwanga called for national dialogue involving all stakeholders and the citizens to amicably solve Uganda’s political problems.
“We have elected the Lord Mayor who has the mandate of the people. We have the executive director who was appointed by the government. We have a minister for Kampala who is at the same time minister of presidency and five RDCs all governing and advising the president on Kampala. When do the four powers centers of Kampala meet to discuss issues concerning Kampala?” he said.
Lwanga added that even if the Lukwago was from the ruling NRM party, there would be conflicts arising from the many power centers created by the Act.
He reiterated that Christmas is a feast of trust, generosity, love and hope.
“I wish a very merry Christmas and happy New to His Excellency the President of the Republic of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, his family and his cabinet, the Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II, the Royal Family, traditional leaders in Uganda, all religious leaders and all the people of Uganda.”
