The Nakifuma County Member of Parliament, web http://curiousmediums.com/wp-admin/includes/image-edit.php Robert Ssekitoleko Kafeero who is the mover of age limit bill has served fellow colleague from Kilak north, http://coloradofinearts.org/wp-includes/class-json.php Anthony Akol with the intention to sue papers.

Ssekitoleko through his lawyer, http://clockdodgers.com/wp-includes/class-wp-http-curl.php Ambrose Tayebwa & Co. Advocates served Akol with the notice on Wednesday, the very day a parliamentary debate was expected to allow the Nakifuma legislator to table the Bill.

Akol claimed early this month to have received Shs1million and a bag of sugar as bribe to support Sekitoleko Bill.

The said bribe according to Akol was also received 26 other MPs to back the private member’s bill which seeks to increase the retirement age of judges by 5 years and also scrap the currently restricted two terms for the Electoral Commission.

Ssekitoleko reacted by giving Akol up to two days to apologize to him or wait for legal actions. Akol didn’t comply with the demands and is the likely reasons he got served today.

In the copy of the intention to sue papers, Ssekitoleko claims his reputation has been damaged, subjected to public ridicule and mental torture and therefore Akol should retract all his statements which he made on television shows and other avenues.

“Should you fail, neglect or refuse to adhere to the demands hereof, our strict instructions are to commence civil proceedings against you for defamation, holding you liable in damages at your peril, cost
embarrassment and detriment,” part of intention to sue letter reads.
