By Kezia Agaba

Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has headed to the Supreme Court to defend his mayoral seat after being kicked out of office again on Monday.His legal team is led by Bugweri County MP Abdul Katuntu.

The Court of Appeal ordered Lukwago out of office after Attorney General, Peter Nyombi, filed an ex-parte application at the Court of Appeal to have Lukwago out of office.

The attorney General was challenging last Friday’s ruling by the High Court which halted the ongoing by-election to replace Lukwago and made him free to access his office again.
