I admire Besigye, Lukwago seeks Shs562m salary

Besigye and Lukwago take a ride

Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, says up to now he is yet to receive his Shs562m salary arrears which he missed while being locked out of City Hall following his 2013 impeachment.

“Up to now, I’m still suffering the injustice caused by Steven Kavuma’s injunction,” Lukwago said while appearing on NBS TV “morning breeze” programme Monday.

He added: “My Shs562m salary hasn’t been cleared and Kavuma is retiring.”

Kavuma was axed by President Yoweri Museveni as deputy Chief Justice and replaced with Justice Alphonse Owiny Dollo last week.

“When I demand for it, they say go back to Kavuma. He is locking his office,” Lukwago lamented.

Talking to Mable Twegumye, the host of NBS TV “People and Power” programme on Sunday, Lukwago said everything that he is, he has worked hard to achieve.

“Nothing came to me on a silver platter. I am an advocate and during university, lecturers used to tell us that law was not for everyone.”

Lukwago said the first case he handled was an impeachment case of the late Councillor George Bageya.

“While I am at home, the titles of Mayor and Lawyer don’t apply. I am just a husband to Nalongo,” he said of his marital life, adding, “I have a conscience and there is no monetary value attached to it. Everything I do I guided by my conscience.”

In Uganda, Lukwago noted, there is a one-man [Museveni] syndrome in the system and that whoever this man appoints starts to feel like a small god.

On his working relationship with Kampala Capital City Authority [KCCA] executive director, Jennifer Musisi, Lukwago said it is guided by the law.

“If I died today, I would be very content that I have given my best energies in whatever office I have occupied.”

The Lord mayor said among the people he admires most is Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] former presidential candidate, Kizza Besigye.

“He is resilient and admirable.”
