He also reminded Kanyeihamba that “while you were this side (where the judges were seated) the senior counsel (Mugisha) would respect your decisions, why don’t you do the same?”

However the controversial lawyer could not just succumb to the advice given to him, telling off Kavuma: “Even you, your actions are unexpected from a senior Judge, you dismissed all of our applications and always interject whenever we are submitting.”

“However, when the other side (petitioners) is presenting, you only say ‘continue, continue’. I think you should also try to be fair, however I take your guidance,” Kanyeihamba reiterated.

Earlier on, Medard Ssegona, another lawyer for the respondents had been barred from making interjections because “you are going to confuse the person presenting. You will submit on what he has said after he has finished,” advised Kavuma.

He had wanted court to stop Mugisha from submitting on issues which were not related to the ruling of Court in the morning.

The Constitutional Court later ruled that the four be temporarily stopped from accessing Parliament and participating in House business pending its verdict on the main petition filed by the NRM party.

Meanwhile, the High Court through Justice Joseph Murangira has sentenced three men to serve 30 years in prison each over robbery.
