The Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has cautioned newly-elected Lord Councilors from the National Unity Platform about tricks that would divert them from their duties and asked them to stick to the struggle to serve Kampala and liberate Uganda.
The newly formed party won 41 of the 44 seats of directly elected and women councilors at City Hall.
The three other positions were won by the
Forum for Democratic Change, the party that also sponsored the Lord Mayor-Erias
Mr. Lukwago yesterday held a meeting with about 30 of the 41 NUP councilors, majority of whom are new entrants, and advised them to keep on track and overcome traps that may be set to dissuade them.
He told councilors that they can fight for their rights but never should they sell out the course.
Before the press was asked out of the meeting, Lukwago told councillors to be focused saying that although they have attained the positions, the trophy is still ahead.
He added that even though they submit to different political parties, their ultimate goal is to change the city to better and liberate this country. Lord Mayor Lukwago speaking…..
Some of the councilors who attended the meeting say it was a great opportunity to have a briefing from the Lord Mayor because he has been at City Hall longer than them. END
