National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretary General, order http://compspoultry.com.au/wp-includes/functions.wp-scripts.php Justine Kasule Lumumba has lambasted Kenyan politician Prof. Anyang Nyongo who recently poked holes in Uganda’s general elections conducted last month.

The Kisumu Senator recently told the Kenyan Parliament that the Ugandan elections were “badly rigged” by the incumbent President Yoweri Museveni.

“The outcome of the presidential election has been very problematic. This is the first time in an African country where an election is held and there is no celebration of victory anywhere,” he said.

“We sit on a precipice of disaster. Like it happened in the 1970s, we may sooner than later, have to accommodate our Ugandan sisters and brothers in Kenya because of insecurity in their country. It is, therefore, we, as Kenyans, to become seized what is going on and get ready to defend democracy, not just in our nation, but everywhere in the world.”

While responding to the Senator’s remarks at the NRM headquarters in Kampala, The Secretary General said Prof Anyang’s concerns were misplaced.

Lumumba went ahead to advise the opposition Orange Democratic Movement [ODM] party Secretary General focus on his party and Kenyan politics.

“I also read his speech on Social Media. If it is true, it’s sad because it shouldn’t be Kenya to advise us on issues about good elections,” she said.

“I even noticed that the person who moved the motion was a Secretary General of a party that has never won elections; if he is an expert in conducting elections, let him first win elections in Kenya then we can take his advice,” Lumumba said.

Prof. Nyango called upon Kenya to lead the world in condemning what is going on in Uganda and called upon Ugandans resist the “dictatorial regime.”

He noted, “I call upon the AU not to be timid, but to stand with nations who love democracy the world over to denounce what is happening in Uganda. I call upon the East African Community right here at home to do the same.”

National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba has lambasted Kenyan politician Prof. Anyang Nyongo who recently poked holes in Uganda’s general elections conducted last month.

The Kisumu Senator recently told the Kenyan Parliament that the Ugandan elections were “badly rigged” by the incumbent President Yoweri Museveni.

“The outcome of the presidential election has been very problematic. This is the first time in an African country where an election is held and there is no celebration of victory anywhere,” he said.

Lumumba went ahead to advise the opposition Orange Democratic Movement [ODM] party Secretary General focus on his party and Kenyan politics.

The panel of 9 Supreme Court judges led by Chief Justice Bart Katureebe, more about http://d4462130.u92.platformpublishing.com.au/wp-admin/includes/misc.php who are hearing the petition against last year’s elections have warned lawyers of the petitioner Amama Mbabazi against playing mind games in court.

Mbabazi’s lawyers wrote to court informing it of the break-ins at the chambers of lead counsel Muhamad Mbabazi and Fred Muwema yesterday on top of the alleged arrests of their key witnesses.

In reply to the accusations, lawyers representing President Museveni asked court to punish their counterparts saying they had stage-managed the break-ins.

According to the deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana, the petitioners assure court in their amended petition that they had in hand affidavits and other pieces of evidence in the case that they were ready to serve court by closure of business on Monday.

“We were ready to receive the affidavits but up to date we have not got anything from them. It seems the break-ins were stage-managed to get sympathy from court, the public on top of covering up the case and to buy more time,” Rukutana told court.

“We are all members of court who are supposed to guide court but not mislead it by telling lies and causing alarm for whatever reasons.”

The respondents asked court to punish their counterparts from the petitioning side for accusing them of acts that were not existent.

On the arrests, Museveni lawyers told court they did investigations and inquiries but found out that there was no one arrested from Mbabazi’s home and detained at Kireka SIU as alleged.

“We found that the allegations were false, unfounded and malicious because no one by the name mentioned by our counterparts was detained at Kireka. We protest counsels’ unprofessional conduct and unbecoming behavior,” added Rukutana.

However in response, Mbabazi’s lawyers led by Asuman Basaalirwa said that their witnesses had since been transferred from Kireka to Jinja and Nalufenya before being released.

Judges Fume

The Chief Justice Bart Katureebe on this matter warned Mbabazi’s lawyers against taking court for a ride with their accusations.

He said the lawyers had promised to table the affidavits by the closure of business on Monday when they filed the amended petition, noting court was surprised they are claiming that the documents were stolen during yesterday’s break-in.

“We are now being treated right, left and centre .You can go on claiming that your witnesses were arrested but there is no record of their names here. You must go an extra mile of being serious with the case,” Katureebe fumed.

He accused the lawyers of being non-compliant with the court order directing them to hand in the affidavits by Monday adding that they ought to have handed in them by the time of the break-ins.
