KCCA councilors, police in fist fight over office
The Inspector General Police, Kale Kayihura on Thursday saved policemen and KCCA councilors from killing themselves when he ordered the reopening of the Kampala District Land Board office which had been sealed off for more than two months over alleged fraud.
Before Kayihura saved the situation from turning from bad to worse, the Police sprayed teargas to disperse the KCCA councilors, the Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago and the city land board chairperson, Yusuf Nsibambi from forcing their way into the office. The office being talked about is situated at the KCCA head offices in Kampala.
During the scuffle, the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago was roughed up by police but he managed to overpower the police forcing Kayihura to order for the reopening of the office.
The constitutional court last week ruled that police vacates these land board offices to let the officials in charge of the offices to resume with their normal operations.
But Kayihura’s men instead claimed that the office was still a scene of crime and nobody was allowed to access it.
