Justice Kavuma To Meet KCCA Warring Factions

The Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma is today expected to meet the warring factions at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).

The Judiciary spokesperson Erias Kisawuzi says the move is meant to defuse the growing tension between the technical and political wings of the authority.

Since the impeachment of city Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago in 2013, there have been endless legal battles between the two parties over his status at City Hall.

Just yesterday Lukwago and his lawyers stormed Justice Kavuma’s office demanding that he issues administrative direction regarding the embattled mayor’s continued lack of access to his office at City Hall.

They claim the interim order issued by court earlier restraining Lukwago from accessing his office had since expired, however, the KCCA executive Director Jennifer Musisi insists Lukwago can only access his office after he is sworn in.

The two factions are Lukwago and his lawyers on one hand, and Government and KCCA on the other.
