Lord Mayor Lukwago: Norbert Mao’s model is working for me

Must read

For a very longtime Kampala Lord Mayor has been very close Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) former presidential candidate, Kiiza Besigye despite not being a member of the top opposition party.

LORD MAYOR LUKWAGO’s MENTOR? DP President Norbert Mao

However, Lukwago appears to have answered that. According to the leader of the Truth and Justice pressure group, his closeness to FDC is an inspiration from Democratic Party president, Norbert Mao.

“A token of appreciation to Hon Nobert Mao and FDC. Every time he would get the opportunity to recount his achievements as the Chairman Gulu District (2006–2011), Hon. Nobert Mao would not fail to mention his hitherto cordial working relationship with the FDC Party. He reasoned that since majority of the Councillors in Gulu District Council subscribed to FDC, it was inevitable for him to build synergy and collaboration with them. At the height of the political imbroglio that bedevilled my previous term as the 1st Lord Mayor of Kampala, Hon. Mao laboured, albeit with no success, to convince me to pick a cue from his Gulu experience and forge a harmonious working relationship with the NRM councillors who were the majority then,” Lukwago writes on social media.

“Of course, it was not feasible given the political dynamics at play. KCCA of today is predominantly FDC with 20 out of 32 Authority Councillors. Given the rapport I have enjoyed with the FDC over the years, coupled with the fact that we share the same values and vision for the liberation and transformation of this country, the Mao Gulu model is perfectly working for me. I therefore thank my brother Hon. Mao for the good precedent and the FDC leadership who wholeheartedly embraced the same.”

At the time of expressing his appreciation, Lukwago was still in the KIgezi region together with Besigye, where they had gone for trial in a Kabale Court.
