While addressing the media at city hall, Lukwago says that the cabinet has been given 45 days to finalize everything that regards the bill. Lord Mayor and his team are going to use the same period to join with other Kampala people to meet and sensitize Kampala residents.
Lukwago adds that on addition to defiantly using residents; they are to use legal avenues to file a petition seeking for a redress over violation of article 1 which democratically gives people power.
Lord Mayor however challenges the minister for Kampala Betty Kamya to front referendum if she believes in power of the people over the councilors selecting devise and authority lord mayors like the new amendment proposals instead of hoodwinking Ugandans.
He attacks minister Kamya for failure to table the authority budget increment which has deterred development especially infrastructure and garbage problem leading to poor sanitation in the city and the Kitezi dumping area over flood. Lukwago adds that she is just being used president Museveni.
