In short
The CP President claims Tumwebaze’s action is a demonstration that Uganda no longer respects rule of law. He now undertakes to collect signatures as a sanction for the motion to have the minister equally ousted under article 118 of the Constitution of Uganda.

Rubaga South MP John Ken Lukyamuzi is leading a section of parliamentarians drafting a censure motion against Frank Tumwebaze, the minister in charge of Kampala.

Lukyamuzi accuses Tumwebaze of openly ignoring a court order which was stopping a meeting which ousted Erias Lukwago from the office of the lord mayor.

Lukwago was yesterday voted out of office by KCCA councillors after a tribunal found him guilty of incompetence and abuse of office.  He lost the ballot by 29 votes to three. Tumwebaze chaired the meeting.
 
However, Lukyamuzi who also doubles as the Conservative Party President claims Tumwebaze’s action is a demonstration that Uganda no longer respects rule of law.  He now undertakes to collect signatures as a sanction for the motion to have the minister equally ousted under article 118 of the constitution of Uganda.

The article provides that parliament may by a resolution supported by more than half of all members of parliament pass a vote of censor against a minister on grounds of abuse of office, misconduct or misbehaviour or willful violation of the oath of allegiance.

Lukyamuzi states that the kind of impunity displayed at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) yesterday while impeaching Lukwago cannot be accepted anywhere in the country.

Cue out:…….because museveni”//

Lukyamuzi also condemned the denial of his entry and counterparts Ssebuliba Mutumba and Latif Ssebagala to the KCCA Council meeting in which they are recognised as ex-official members according to the KCCA Act.

Cue out:……is a demonstration”//
