His own Witness Account:
“I was, yesterday, released on police bond to report today. This action by Mr Kale and his police emanates from the Friday radio one Spectrum programme. There are largely three issues that have haunted their souls; My assertion that they extra judiciary executed civilians in Kasese, The Judiciary is an appendage of the NRA occupation, That Mr Kigundu didn’t have his eye glasses on and read wrong results. My argument remains that any armed forces that are not wicked cannot pride in killing civilians” (…) “Forces under civilised command would always do their best to protect civilians and where civilians have violated the law do all their best to bring the said civilians to face justice. Where the civilians are riotus you deploy the force with protection gear like helmets and stone shields” (…)“You can only deploy an armed force without protection gear against a riotus population if your intention is to gun down the said population. That Mr Kale and the Minister of Internal affairs made judgement and condemned the executed civilians without an investigation and besides the subsequent statement of Mr Kale quoted by the media that they would gun down more civilians. …and that they indeed gunned down more civilians later further reinforces my belief that they have it as their policy to gun down civilians” (…) “Indeed the Secretary General of the NRA occupation Ms Lumumba disclosed it as their policy of gunning down riotus civil population. I certainly oppose extra judicial executions. I will continue to be the voice of those poor souls that were executed. .The known and the unknown and those of you who are yet to be extra judiciary executed. Of course those who followed court proceedings know more than I do that Kigundu is yet to read the correct results. This election was a farce. It was rigged. Period” (…) ”Who ever wants to hang for that belief and opinion kindly hurry. I said and I still mantain my line that in the constituency Assembly where I was a member, we aspired for an Independent Judiciary. The NRA occupation won’t let this happen. The NRA occupation has raided courts severally. The Court ordered Mr Elias Lukwago back to office and that was ignored. Since then they even have never cleaned Mr Lukwago’ s office. I told the NRA occupation police force that I would repeat the same views on any other platforms because I believe I’m wholly right and the NRA occupation is wholly wrong. It’s my natural right to resist evil and I won’t slacken even in the face of death. Off to the NRA occupation police to preach the gospel of liberation from the NRA occupation. God is Great” (Charles Rwomushana, 31.03.2016).
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. FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY.

He has just been arrested and is detained in Maganjo Police Station. The Lord Mayor of Kampala has been jailed before and also lost powers to Jennifer Musisi in Kampala Capital City Authority since he is a DP Mayor in the Capitol and not one of the loyal subjects of the NRM-Regime.
For a few hours ago he wrote this on social media:
“This is a defining moment in as far as the political history and trajectory of this country is concerned. It’s therefore imperative that we should be judicious, meticulous and diligent in all crucial decisions made during this season. The people’s sovereign authority and political stability of our country should reign supreme over any other parochial considerations. Divine intervention is of critical importance in guiding this intricate political process. May the good lord bless this pearl of Africa. Nice weekend” (Erias Lukwago).
Greenfield Radio had an poll on who people wanted as mayor right now:
These Are The Final Outcomes Of The Yesterday’ Mayoral Opinion Poll Elections Held On Our Page.

2-Daniel Kazibwe Aka Ragga Dee (NRM) 03 Votes
3-Isa Kikungwe (DP) O0 Votes
4-Milles Rwamiti (FDC) 00 Votes.
Out Of 26 Votes Only 1 Vote Was Counted Void” (Greenfield Radio with Robert Onyango).
Yesterday this happen as he contest get further people involved in Kampala:
“DP MP Issa Kikungwe has announced that he will contest for the seat of Kampala Lord Mayor currently held by another DP member Erias Lukwago who has already expressed interest in retaining his seat”. Take a look at the press release.
A tiny report from NRM Primaries:
“50 NRM councillors in Kampala were dropped in the NRM primaries by the voters. The voters say that most of these were punished for illegally censuring the lord Mayor Erias Lukwago” (Credible source!).
