"The will of the people has finally prevailed. It's a triumph of Truth and Justice. THANK YOU for all your invaluable contribution towards this historic achievement. I will always honour and jelously guard the sanctity of the social contract and oath of office made today. May the good Lord reward and bless you all."
That was the post that the Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, made shortly after his swearing in ceremony. Singer Red Banton performed his Sija Kuva Kampala hit for the Lord Mayor as he made his way to office.
Earlier on, the Lord Mayor had expressed his fears that the day set for the swearing in was the very day he was supposed to be appearing in court up country. He also wondered why every other person including those who could say; "I Solomon Ataffa' had been sworn in but not him.
It should be recalled that the earlier date coincided with the visit of the South Korean and Turkey President's visits something that will would have over stretched the authorities in providing security for all. It's for this reason that the swearing in ceremony was postponed to June 6, 2016.
Congratulatory messages with his favorite line, 'Omuloodi Waali' have since been trickling in.
Meanwhile, in the list of Ministers that was released on Monday, Hon. Betty Kamya was appointed as Minister for Kampala Capital City Authority and Hon. Benna Namugwanya as the Minister of State for Kampala Capital City Authority.

"In politics, there is a winner and a loser," Ragga Dee noted while being interviewed by a local television. Lukwago was declared winner this morning from UMA-Lugogo where the votes from over 1,000 polling stations were being tallied.
"The 75.5% garnered out of the results from 82% of the polling stations so far tallied certainly surpasses my earlier expectations. I may not be wholly in a celebratory mood given the debacle we suffered as a nation during the presidential election, and the fact that my brother, Dr. Besigye is in shackles and chains, but permit me to express my heartfelt gratitude to the entire electorate in Kampala for the unreserved trust and honour bestowed upon me in yesterday's polls."
"It's quite a humbling experience and a historic moment that I will always treasure in my life. I reiterate my total commitment to the social contract we've executed in this civic exercise. I will remain steadfast on matters of rule of law, social justice, accountability and all the values you hold dear as humanity. My leadership shall be guided by the Will of the people and the philosophy of a shared vision."
"Transformation of Kampala into a modern capital city befitting the Pearl of Africa is critical but it must be guided by proper planning, taking into account the values of social justice, equity and sustainability. I once again THANK YOU for the overwhelming support and love manifested through out the entire process. May God bless you all."
The Balalu singer will now have to concentrate on his music and other businesses as he waits for another five years to give it another shot.

Former Kampala Mayor Al Hajj Nasser Ntege Sebaggala was supposed to hand over officially to the Lord Mayor on Thursday morning but did not show up citing sickness. The Lord Mayor Lukwago Erias together with the new Kampala CEO Jennifer Musisi Semakula waited for him but in vain.
The Kampala CEO later reached him on phone and 'Seya' as he is fondly called promised to appear on Monday. The Mayor elect expressed concern about the delayed handover which has greatly affected him because he was to start work on the May 20, but up to now, he has still done nothing.
Yesterday Al Hajj Sebagala appeared before the Parliamentary Appointments Committee so that he can convince them on his newly acquired role of Minister without portfolio but he fell short of the required standards.
It is not clear if the former Mayor's not appearing to Kampala City Hall for the handover process is linked to his being rejected for the post of Minister without portfolio in the President's office.
Their daughter turned 7, a few days back.
During the interview, MC Kats caught up with his baby mama on a number of issues ranging from her Extended Play that she will be releasing soon, the two collaboration songs that King Saha agreed to work on with Fille.
Asked what the magic was, and Hellen was like and that is nothing, he is capable of a lot more.
"I have two children, Ata and Ark, with my Heaven sent Anwar, we have been together for five years. I am a good person and my hubby is the only one in this world, he was made for me and by the way, that is nothing compared to the things he has done."
In a Snapchat post decorated with green snakes emojis, God's Plan who is currently in the UK has revealed how the 'Bango' singer ended up dating his then girlfriend Sheilah Gashumba.
"He used to come to my apartment to chill, drink and eat food..."
Not long back, when Zari was explaining how she hit the rocks with King Bae, who turned out to be romance scammer, she said that it is not about money when it comes to dating her, so even the not so loaded guys were welcome to give it a try, but looking at her new lover, GK Choppa, he seems to be wearing two faces, in him you see a combination of her late hubby and Diamond Platnumz.
