In a social media message, Opiyo, has extended his congratulations to Sebatindira just after losing to her in an election held at imperial Royal hotel, Entebbe where the general assembly convened.

Congratulations to Ruth Sebatindira upon your re-election. Let’s build not break the society,” Opiyo said in a message.

Ahmed Kalule floored rival Simon Peter Kinobe for Secretary General, officially replacing Nicholas Opiyo

Among other notables present on the occasion were; Executive Director of the Law Development Centre, Frank Nigel Othemi, Dr Pamela Kalyegira (UCU Law Dean), East Africa Law Society President James Mwawu, Kenya Bar Chairman Eric Mutua and Tito Byenkya.

Like we reported earlier, the ULS has in recent years come under heavy criticism for not coming out boldly to defend the rule of law.

The society dragged its feet and also exhibited signs of spinelessness in challenging the re-appointment of Chief Justice Benjamin Odoki after the expiry of his term in office last year.

According to those who attended the general assembly, the Christian Lawyers’ influence determined the outcome of the USL election that handed back Sebatindira her seat.
