Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has appointed the LC V Woman Councillor for Makindye East Sarah Kanyike as his Deputy Lord Mayor.
Kanyike was battling for the seat with Doreen Nyanjura, the Woman councillor for Makerere.

Nakuya was among the few NRM councillors who condemned for throwing Lukwago out of office in 2013 when he was accused by then Kampala minister Frank Tumwebaze of misconduct and incompetence.
