There is tight security at City Hall as Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago resumes his office.
This comes after the High Court ruled in favour of Lukwago’s petition in which he challenged the Electoral Commission from holding the Mayoral elections on April 17.
Justice Lydia Mugambe ruled that the by-election organised to find a replacement of Lukwago cannot take place until his petition challenging KCCA is concluded.

The court also ordered the government, EC and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to pay for all the costs incurred by Lukwago.
Today, Lukwago was given access to his office amidst tight security at City Hall, however, his supporters were blocked by the heavy anti-riot police.
Police spokesperson Judith Nabakooba had earlier said the police would not dispute Friday’s court ruling which shows that Lukwago is the legitimate Lord Mayor.
Meanwhile, police remains heavily deployed at city hall to counter any kind of chaos.
