Judiciary Applauds Kadaga’s Decision Towards Kavuma’s Ruling

Judiciary Applauds Kadaga’s Decision Towards Kavuma’s Ruling


By Serestino Tusingwire


Judiciary has today broken silence on the ongoing fight between the legislature and deputy chief justice Steven Kavuma.  This resulted from an injunction Kavuma issued barring parliament from debating about the Shs6bn oil cash bonanza.

According to the letter dated 11th January, 2017; Judiciary chief registrar Paul Gadenya Wolimbwa said what parliament did to reject the order is recommendable and it’s legally acceptable.

“The Judiciary has noted that Parliament is aggrieved by the decision of the Constitutional Court and has in that respect directed the Attorney General to take immediate steps to have the order set aside by the Constitutional Court.”

“The action taken by Parliament is commendable and is in accordance with the rule of law because the law allows any aggrieved party to appeal or challenge the decision of a court,” Letter reads in part.

It should be noted that despite Kavuma’s order, Parliament went ahead to discuss the issue in Tuesday plenary and the no nonsense Kadaga ordered for the withdrawal of the order such that parliament can do its work independently.

The furious Kadaga adjourned the house until the court order is reversed.
