cost geneva;”>According to documents tendered in court, Karokora served in public service from 1963 to November 4, 2006 when he retired.

“When I complained to the Pensions Authority, I was informed that they were bound by section 13(1) of the Pensions Act which stipulates that any pensioner gets 87% of the period he has served,” Karokora told court through his lawyer of Munanura Mugabi and company advocates.

Karokora claims by following this section of the Act, he was cheated of his seven years pension which was in total breach of article 254 (1) of the Constitution which stipulates that a public officer shall on retirement receive such pension as is commensurate to his or her rank, salary and length of service.

Karokora, who was one of the country’s finest judges, now wants the Constitutional Court to declare Section 13 (1) unconstitutional and order the commissioner for pension Stephen Kunsa to re-compute his pension for the 420 months and pay interest on the resultant figure plus costs of the suit.
