Only three councilors were against. lukwago 2

According to Section 12 of KCCA Act, the Authority can remove the lord mayor from office if the tribunal finds a prima facie case against him. Mr Lukwago’s lawyer Abudullah Kiwanuka who had gone to KCCA to serve the minister with an earlier court injunction that had blocked his censure, was beaten up by plain-clothed police before he bundled onto a police van that whisked him to Central Police Station. — Source Daily Monitor and NBS TV
