The High Court has adjourned a matter filed by Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s lawyer Fred Mukasa Mbidde under which he wants to have the case filed by controversial lawyer Male Mabirizi moved from Buganda Road Court to the High Court, and to remove some of the people illegally attached on the suite.
Some of those that Mbidde says were added illegally are; Hon.Mawanda Micheal Muranga, Andrew Mujuni Mwenda, Barugahara Balaam Ateenyi, Hon.Kabanda David, Nuwagira Micheal, Kaguta Alias Toyota, Lillian Aber and Katungi Micheal.
Talking to our reporter today at High Court, Mbidde said that in court they agreed on written submissions that the applicant shall file and serve written submissions by 7th August 2023, then respondents shall respond by 11th August 2023, and then rejoinders will be expected by 15th August 2023.
”So the matter will come up for mention on the 17th August for purposes then that the date for ruling shall be given,” noted English master and law pundit, Fred Mukasa Mbidde.
For some of our new readers, the case, which has attracted significant attention, arises from Buganda Road criminal session case number 659 of 2023, emanating from City Hall Court criminal case number 4530 of 2022 that were the subject of a private prosecution by Mabirizi.
Mabirizi initiated the suit in November 2022 alleging that Kainerugaba addressed a political gathering at Kololo Independence Grounds in Central Division, Kampala City, on October 11th, 2022, without resigning from the UPDF.
According to Mabirizi, this act contravenes section 99 of the UPDF Act, which prohibits serving military personnel from engaging in political activities. Mabirizi further argues that Kainerugaba’s actions caused common annoyance and inconvenience to the public, thereby violating their rights.
But for Gen Muhoozi’s lawyer Counsel Fred Mukasa Mbidde, this is not a case but an attempt to waste Gen Muhoozi’s precious time something he [Mbidde] vowed not to kowtow to.
”We’re simply dealing with tumultuous and Palookas character, who simply enjoys being a busy buddy (an idle, meddling or prying person) by loitering around courts” Mbidde said during a previous court session that saw the case pushed to High Court to first erase some illegalities around Mabirizi’s suit.
