Lukwago ‘heavily’ defeats Ragga Dee


By our writer

Erias Lukwago was declared winner of the 2016 Kampala mayoral election with 176,637 votes from 82% of results from 1,101 polling stations. Daniel Kazibwe (Ragga Dee) polled 49,366 votes while Issa Kikungwe finished last with 7,759 votes.

I have a list of priorities, because this is very important. What we need to do is to rebuild the structures in the city. We want to restore to rule of law and good governance. It is only a robust and vibrant authority that will deliver the kind of city you want. I am amenable to criticism; I am amenable to checks and balances. I am neither alpha nor omega. As soon as I enter City Hall, one thing I will do is to work on the main drainage channel. We must come up with a new structural plan realigning key issues like coming up with a programme for neighbourhoood planning, there must be a clearly demarcated industrial area. We must plan for our transport system, we must plan for our infrastructure. Erias Lukwago was quoted after emerging winner in yesterday’s mayoral elections.
