“As defenders of the rule of law and constitutionalism, we hail the ULS and note that this bold move should be a warning that the legal fraternity will not entertain members who bring the society into disrepute,” said Mao.
The legal fraternity last week kicked out the Attorney General for a “series of wrong, illegal and unacceptable pieces of legal advice” he has been giving out to the government and the president.
Among these are his legal opinions on the confidentiality clause in the Oil Bill, his insistence that the Public Order Management Bill doesn’t offend the constitution, his advice on the appointment of General Aronda Nyakairima and the reappointment of Justice Benjamin Odoki as Chief Justice.
Mao further revealed that the party is waiting for the presidential assent and gazetting of the Public Order Bill in order to file a constitutional case challenging its “offensive” provisions.
“The party has also announced that it will bring a constitutional case alongside the Uganda Law Society to nullify the reappointment of justice Odoki as Chief Justice,” Mao added.
He added that DP is working with other political parties and civil society organizations to carry out a campaign to oppose and denounce the Public Order Management Bill.
