Court Orders Auctioning of Makerere VC’s Car, 3 Others

Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Ddumba Ssentamu's car is set to be auctioned together with three others.

The troubles at Makerere University are far from over. High Court Execution Division in Kampala on Wednesday issued an attachment order for court bailiffs to impound 4 motor vehicles belonging to University Vice Chancellor Prof Ddumba Ssentamu, for sale his deputy, diagnosis that of the University Secretary and Bursar through public auction.

This order was issued to enable the bailiffs auction the vehicles to recover Shs. 56million in unpaid legal fees to a city advocate Steven Ssenkeezi Ssali.

The documents before court indicate that in 2014, Makerere University agreed to pay Ssenkeezi the 56 million shillings as fees for representing Hajjati Fatuma Nakatude and a one Uzobia Baine who were University employees challenging the procedure through which individuals occupying the top administrative posts within the University are appointed.

Makerere University agreed to settle the matter out of the High court and to meet legal costs incurred by the two plaintiffs; something the University has failed to fulfill up to now despite repeated demands from the lawyer.

This prompted lawyer Ssenkeezi from Ssekeezi, Ssali and Company Advocates to institute execution proceedings against Makerere University.

Yesterday the deputy Registrar in-charge of execution and bailiff matters, Musa Musimbi ordered Sarah Komuhangi’s Pay and Go Free Associates to attach the said vehicles.

This morning Komuhangi successfully managed to attach one of the vehicles, a  Toyota Land Cruiser Registration No. UAJ -667X belonging to David Kahondha Muhwezi the Makerere University Secretary after she intercepted its driver at Planning House in Kampala.

Komuhangi drove the vehicle to High Court Kampala’s parking yard where it is currently parked as the search for the other 3 remaining cars is ongoing.
