Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, has firmly set his eyes on top leadership in the country come 2016 general elections.
Lukwago who has been wrestling with Democratic Party President, Norbert Mao, Wednesday launched a pressure group dubbed: “Truth and justice platform”.
Launched at Bativa hotel in Kampala, Lukwago said the pressure group will help them take power from Museveni come 2016 general elections.
He said it was not a political party because he is still a member of DP but a platform to help his Buganda faction capture power.
Lukwago further clarified that his group was not aiming at fighting Mao’s leadership but had set their eyes far ahead and way up in government.
Running under the theme; “Paving the way to state power”, the group is ready to work with The Democratic Alliance (TDA) in order to achieve its goals.
Lukwago, the team leader and his deputy, Samuel Walter Lubega, also launched a fundraising campaign to raise resources that will facilitate all the group activities and campaign.
Some of the DP members who were present at the event include, the Kawempe Division- South MP Richard Sebuliba Mutumba, Rubaga North MP Moses Kasibante, DP’s national organising Secretary Charles Musoke Sserunjogi and Kawempe North MP Latif Ssebagala, to mention but a few.
Meanwhile, his adversary DP president-elect Norbert Mao has already outlined priority issues he plans to tackle in the next five years while holding the leadership of the party.
Mao, who won the DP elections with 898 votes against Buikwe South MP Lulume Bayiga’s 360, in a delegates’ conference organised at the weekend, outlined reconciliation, completing the party’s house and compiling members’ register as top most priorities.
But Lukwago insists they can only negotiate after 2016.
