|Teargas near our offices as there are demonstrations in Kampala|
Today, there were numerous demonstrations that the police had to quell, with force and tear gas. The Lord Mayor of Kampala had been found guilty of 8 of 12 charges brought against him last week. This morning, the city councilors held a vote as to whether to remove him from office or not. The vote was 29 out of 32 in favor to remove him. He and his cronies have been in direct opposition to the Executive Director (ED) and have been battling it out over the last couple of years, hampering progress. The President had hand picked the ED to bring transformation to Kampala. They are called technocrats, whereas the Lord Mayor and the other Mayors (5 divisional mayors) are the political side.
