NRM Rebels MPs’ Hearing On

more about geneva;”>This follows the quashing of their application to stay court proceedings until when the court is fully constituted. However, page this was turned down by acting Chief Justice, Steven Kavuma.

In his ruling read by Justice Augustine Nshimye last week, court dismissed the application saying the issue of five justices applies when the Court of Appeal is seating as a Constitutional Court.

“However, there is no mandatory requirement to hear a temporary injunction, if the quorum should be made up of five justices,” Justice Kavuma said.

The judges said there was no law that bars them from hearing an application arising out of a constitutional petition since they are simply hearing, not interpreting the constitution.

The case was adjourned to July 30 to allow court serve the respondents with the ruling after one of the respondents’ lawyer, retired Supreme Court Justice George Kanyeihamba asked for it.

Theodore Ssekikubo (Lwemiyaga County), Mohammed Nsereko (Kampala central), Barnabas Tinkasimire (Buyaga west) and Wilfred Niwagaba (Ndorwa East) had through their lawyer Prof Kanyeihamba opposed the hearing by the three justices saying the court is not fully constituted.
