Wednesday was highly anticipated as the day Erias Lukwago was going to take his vows as the Lord Mayor of Kampala city along with other elected councillors.
However, it seems the party will not commence as planned as police decided to intervene in the ceremony following the many activities the force is involved in within this week.
Already, some security forces are busy with the delegates that flew in from South Korea and Turkey and it so happens that on Thursday, all roads will be leading to Namugongo for the Martyrs day celebrations which calls for heavy security.
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga, adds that the force will concentrate its manpower on securing visiting Heads of States and pilgrims travelling to the Namugongo for the Martyrs Day celebrations.
“The police will be preoccupied, with most of our men securing the VIPs, during the presidents’ visits and the Martyrs’ Day celebrations. Therefore they will not be able to effectively secure the swearing-in function because they would be over stretched.” Enanga told journalists today morning.
It is on this note that The Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura asked Jennifer Musisi, the Executive Director Kampala Capital City Authority-KCCA to postpone the swearing in of the Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago and city councillors.
To Kayihura, police is currently unable to provide enough protection during the swearing in ceremony and the celebrations that are likely to follow.
