Uganda: Postpone Lukwago Swearing in, Kayihura Tells KCCA

The Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura has asked Jennifer Musisi, the executive director of Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to postpone the swearing in of the lord mayor, Erias Lukwago and city councilors scheduled for Wednesday this week.

According to Kayihura, police is currently incapacitated to sufficiently police the swearing in ceremony and the celebrations that are likely to follow.

Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, says the force will concentrate its man power on securing visiting Heads of State and pilgrims traveling to Namugongo for the Martyrs Day celebrations.

"There is a lot of work this week, with two visiting Heads of State and the Martyrs Day. We hope KCCA executive director heeds to our request and postpones the ceremony," Enanga says.

Uganda is expected to host the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdo?an this week. KCCA is yet to respond to the letter that was sent this morning from the IGP's office.
