Hearing of an application filed by CEO of The Investigator, ed an online publication, decease Stanley Ndawula seeking to revoke a ban on reporting of Kaweesi murder investigations has flopped.

The IGP Gen.Kale Kayihura through the Attorney General sought and received an interim order from High Court registrar Joy Kabagye stopping a section of media houses including The Investigator from publishing stories related to Kaweesi murder investigations

Ndawula through his lawyers from Muwema and Company filed an application seeking to throw out the interim order.

Hearing of the application which was scheduled to take place today however, flopped following a revelation by Kabagye that she was not aware of the said application.

When Ndawula’s lawyers led by Friday Kagoro reached the registrar’s office, they were told that their case had never been fixed for hearing.

“I don’t have such an application with me,” Kabagye told lawyers.

The lawyers were also puzzled after learning that Attorney General had reported to court that he had not been served with any documents in relation to the application by Ndawula’s side.

On crosschecking with court records, Ndawula’s lawyers found that their application had not been sanctioned for hearing before the registrar.

“We are filing another application and we hope this time it will be heard,” Kagoro told journalists.

Gen. Kayihura dragged 4 media houses to court for publishing stories related to the investigations into the murder of AIGP Andrew Kaweesi saying they are jeopardizing the investigations and compromising security of the country.
