During an Authority meeting at City Hall today, Lukwago said he received a letter from the executive director directing that the two councillors be sworn. However, Lukwago argued that he did not put them on the order paper for oath taking because their legality is not clear.
Ezra Ssebuwufu, the KCCA Deputy Revenue Director, told councilors that the local government rating act of 2005 allows KCCA to charge and collect 2 percent interest on any rate, which remains in arrears for more than thirty days from the day it becomes payable.
Lukwagos application comes barely a week after the same court heard and concluded a petition filed by renowned broadcaster Mulindwa Muwonge challenging the existence of political offices in the city. He wants the court to annul the election of the Kampala Lord Mayor, Councilors designated to Kampala Capital City Authority and divisional mayors.
The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) tribunal has learnt that Mustafa Mayambala, the chairperson of Drivers and Conductors Association (DACCA), has for the last 15 months not held a driving permit despite his position as a leader and taxi driver.
