While addressing a news conference at his office in Kampala, the Lord Mayor has also expressed displeasure that Kampala Capital City Authority, set June 1st as the new date for the swearing-in without consulting his office.

The oath, according to Lukwago, will be administered by the Chief Magistrate of Buganda Road Court or any other person assigned by the Judiciary.

After the talking oath, the Lord Mayor will deliver his maiden speech detailing his programs meant to transform Kampala.
