FDC’s Erias Lukwago will still govern as Kampala Lord Mayor for the next five years after being declared winner by Electoral Commission (EC) returning officer for Kampala Barbra Mulimira. Lukwago’s City Hall job was under ‘threat’ from 11 other contesters that vied to take up the position. However, he has overcome the threat following yesterday’s election as he gathered a total of 194,592 votes. National Unity Platform candidate Nabilah Nagayi Ssempala and Independent (NUP leaning) Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleone were combined and trounced by Kampala Lord Mayor incumbent Erias Lukwago in yesterday’s Lord Mayor elections. Lukwago who stood on the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) ticket became the Kampala Lord Mayor for the third consecutive time. “What a historic moment! Praise be to the Almighty. Thank you Kampala! The Statement is unequivocally loud and clear; OMULOODI WAALI. Our love is etched in stone. Asante sana. Mungu awabarik,” Lukwago said.
