Kampala MP Mohammed Nsereko was the most vocal, saying the ruling was nothing but a “curse of myopism and bad leadership.”

He further attacked the judiciary which he said was supposed to be the “temple of justice” but had quickly turned into “a temple of injustice because it is accepting to be used by the regime.”

“The war of politics has entered the temple of Justice. We wanted a fundamental change, from Obote’s Afro hair to Museveni’s bald head thinking there would be any change,” charged Nsereko.

He said the MPs were waiting on their lawyers to make an appeal to the Supreme Court.

“Judges are coached on what judgment to pass, when to pass and to whom, it is a clear embarrassment to the Ugandan voters,” said Nsereko.

Niwagaba described the judges as “NRM cadres” and “failed politicians” who should never have been judges.

“If peasants rejected them what makes you think they can deliver justice?” he wondered.

MP Barnabas Tinkasiimire said MPs intend to head to “another court, which we think is sober and not drunk with NRM.”

Ssekikuubo said the judiciary had been compromised and that there was no avenue for seeking justice in the country.

“Where does one go to seek justice? Fellow countrymen we have to rise up and throw this man out. We have said enough is enough for thieves. How can four heads of judges write a two-paged judgment? This is Museveni’s judgment. Your Excellency where ever you are, what have we done to you?” charged Ssekikuubo

He further noted that “it is Museveni who was on trial, it is now clear he cannot be democratic, he is now influencing the courts.”

“We will not be bought off like what Museveni does, we will stand our ground and represent our people,” said Niwagaba.
