Kamya blocks  Lukwago’s salary again.

The bad blood between  the Minister  for KCCA Beti Kamya and the Lord  Mayor Erias Lukwago  seems far from abating after  the Minister  blocked the Lord Mayor’s salary  arrears.

In a letter  dated January  2 adressed to the KCCA Executive  Director  Jennifer  Musisi, Kamya ordered that Lukwago  should  not be paid a single penny until cases  regarding  his removal  from office are definitively  resolved  by the Court  of Appeal and  Supreme  Court.

“The Attorney  General’s official  interpretation  of the legal process that  began  in April 2013 and continued upto 2014 is that the Lord Mayor’s  emoluments from 2013 can only be resolved  after  the Court  of Appeal  and the  Supreme  Court have conclusively  determined  whether  the Lord Mayor was lawfully  removed  from  office, “Kamya wrote in a strongly  worded  letter.

She further  ordered  that: “In the meantime,  the Lord Mayor’s  benefits  & emoluments  can not  be paid. Please  inform  the Lord Mayor “.

Kamya copied her letter  to  the Prime Minister,the Minister  for Justice  & Constitutional Affairs,  Attorney  General,  Solicitor  General and the KCCA Director  of Legal  Services.

The Lord Mayor is demanding  for emoluments  and benefits  he wasn’t  paid for  the period  between  2013 and 2015 when he was forced  out of office by government elements  led by the then Minister  for the Presidency  Frank  Tumwebaze.

Kamya’s letter will add fuel  to the frosty relationship  she has enjoyed  with the Lord Mayor with the duo  locked in an ego clash  and turf war  at City Hall.

Below is Kamya’s letter.
