Embattled former Chairman General, National Organization of Trade Unions (NOTU), Usher Wilson Owere has been left hopeless after court dismissed his application blocking the General Council decision that saw him being voted out on November 15, 2022.
Court trashed Owere’s application after both the applicant and his counsel didn’t appear in Court to prosecute their application.
”This Application coming up this 17th day of November, 2022 at 10:30am before His Worship Karemani Jamson K., Deputy Registrar in the presence of Mr. Musimbi Alex Counsel for the Respondent and in absence of Counsel for the Applicants and both parties. It is hereby ORDERED as hereunder;
”The application is dismissed since both Applicants and their Counsel have not appeared in Court to prosecute their application. No order of costs is made since Counsel for the Respondent has not filed an affidavit in reply,” Court ruled.
The above means Owere risks being arrested and charged with criminal trespass if he dares force his way to his former office at NOTU since the ruling paves way for the smooth leadership of the newly elected Stephen Mugole who is now the Ag Chairman General of NOTU.
Other leaders that were elected by the twenty seven NOTU affiliates out of 34 unions include, Richard Bigirwa as Secretary General, Moses Mauku as Treasurer General and Barbara Bandaru as Deputy Treasurer General.
According to sources, the new NOTU board is preparing to be sworn-in soon to begin its work.
