The High Court civil division in Kampala has ordered Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago to pay shs47 million in taxes after losing an appeal against former KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi lawyers.
Lukwago filed an application in 2012 accusing Musisi who was the KCCA Executive Director then of seizing his powers and passing off as the head of KCCA by holding meetings with traders, a mandate, according to Lukwago, Musisi didn’t have.
However, the High Court dismissed the application with costs to Musisi and her lawyers from Kasirye Byaruhanga and Company Advocates filled a bill of costs that had been taxed at 47 million shillings that the execution division ordered Lukwago to pay.
However, Lukwago later asked the Civil Division of the High Court to reverse the ruling of Justice Musota but on Friday, Justice Andrew Bashaija dismissed the appeal by Lukwago.
In his ruling on Friday, Justice Bashaija said having been dismissed earlier as being an abuse of court process, there is no way the appeal by Lukwago would stand.
