Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has warned the newly appointed minister for Kampala Beti Kamya not to dare interfere with his job.
Lukwago said that if Kamya’s mission is to disrupt him or interfere with his work, then she should ready for a fight because he is also ready to protect his job.
“She should not dare cross my path if her mission is to interfere with my work because I’m also ready to fight back,” said Lukwago.
He also wants Kamya to explain why Kamya betrayed members of the opposition and cross over to the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM).
However, in her response, Kamya insists she’s still an opposition member and also still the president of Uganda Federal Alliance (UFA).
“Minister has her job so is the Lord Mayor. If we work within the law, then there will be no clash. I have not joined NRM,” said Kamya, a 2011 presidential contender.
According to Lukwago, Kamya used to sit on the top organ of The Democratic Alliance (TDA) and therefore her appointment is treacherous to the opposition members since she has so many secrets of opposition members that she might sell to president Museveni.
President Yoweri Museveni on Monday appointed Kamya as minister for Kampala, replacing Frank Tumwebaze who was appointed as the new minister for Information and Communications and ICT.
