KAMPALA–Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, has warned Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) councillors that they will be ruining their careers if they don’t stay away from President Yoweri Museveni’s “money politics”.
Lukwago was commenting on the 228 councillors who went to President Museveni’s farm in Kisozi last week.
The councillors said they are going to Kisozi to take part in a skills learning exercise courtesy of Beti Kamya, the Minister for Kampala.
“Last year, Kamya took them to Kyankwanzi for a retreat. On return, they endorsed the age limit bill making President Museveni an eternal ruler of Uganda,” Lukwago said.
“I want to assure you that not even a single councillor would come from Kisozi, Kyankwanzi or State House to champion Museveni’s agenda in Kampala,” he added.
“It’s a difficult task, they are dealing with a potato, they are dealing with a very sensitive matter,” he added.
According to Lukwago,President Museveni’s transactional politics which is not sustainable.
“That kind of politics may have serious implications on the careers of these councillors,” he said.
