Mujib Kasule

The case where former Fufa Vice President Mujib Kasule is seeking for a temporary injunction on the Fufa General Assembly has been adjourned to Friday (tomorrow).

Kasule contested for the post of Fufa Presidency but had his nomination thrown out with the Fufa electoral commission citing he lacked the necessary qualification.

Through his lawyers, Kasule on Wednesday sought for court action calling for a temporary injunction on the Fufa General Assembly slated.

And on Thursday at the High Court, Civil Division before the Lady Justice Margaret Oguli Oumo at exactly 2:17pm, Mujib Kasule’s lead lawyer Kenneth Nsubuga stated his case as to why his client is seeking for a temporary injunction on the Fufa General Assembly.

“My Lord we are seeking to certify miscellaneous injunction application of as urgent such that the same be ascertained in this very hearing,” he started.

“We seek to challenge the Electoral process of Fufa and how it was conducted. My Client was a candidate for Fufa Presidency and yet the Elections are this Saturday. This therefore confirms the urgency to have an interim order,” he added.

On the respondents side it was only Fufa CEO, Edgar Watson and Fufa Electoral Committee Vice chairman, Yusuf Awuye that were present in court out of the ten that are implied in the case.

Ambrose Tebyasa led the way to file defense for the respondents stating the applicant did not disclose any justifiable reasons to have an injunction on the General Assembly.

“We do oppose this application as it does not disclose any justifiable circumstances and or reasons making it to be an urgent matter,” he said.

However, the judge after hearing from both sides ruled that the case will take place on Friday for a ruling on whether the urgent application of the injunction is certified or not.

Already two cases almost regarding to a similar matter have been thrown out including one last week filed by football fans and the other that was dismissed today(Thursday) in Lira High Court.
