Embattled Kampala city Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago will have to wait longer to learn if he can resume his duties as court today failed to sit and decide on his case.
Lukwago is in court because despite being ruled as still Lord Mayor of the city, he has been denied access to his office at City Hall.
Court presided over by Judge Yasin Nyanzi was sitting today to hear his case.
However, before the case could come up to be heard the Attorney General’s representative Martin Mwambutsya raised an objection.
He asked that the court be cleared so he could raise the issues his client had in camera.
Those who remained in court say that Mwambutsya asked that Justice Nyanzi disqualify himself from hearing the case because he is biased.
Mwambutsya argues that Justice Nyanzi was part of the 26th November, 2013 injunction uproar as the sitting judge. Mwambutsya argues that his client had been aware that hearing of Lukwago’s injunction to stay his impeachment at 10:00am.
But Nyanzi permitted hearing of the injunction to proceed between 8:30-0:00am through Fred Waninda, the Assistant High Court registrar.
Nyanzi then set January 24 as the date when he would rule on whether to disqualify himself from hearing the case or not.
Meanwhile information is trickling in that Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) councillors have elected as acting Lord Mayor Baker Serwamba (NRM Makindye II) and Bernard Luyiga (DP MUK) Deputy Lord Mayor.
