    CJ Katureebe’s Groomed Kadaga Into The Worst Speaker She Is Turning Out To Be – Lawyer Mabirizi: He Is Like A Husband Who Can’t Discipline A Maid Because He Had A Love Affair With Her….

    on

    Maverick Lawyer Male Mabirizi has blamed the Chief Justice Bart Katureebe for grooming the Speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga into a poisonous Mushroom to rule of law.

    “I blame Katureebe’s Judiciary for making Kadaga such a poisonous mushroom to Rule of law unlike the Wambuzi and Odoki-led Judiciary which never tolerated Kadaga’s legal incompetence,” Mabirizi notes.

    Mabirizi says that because the Katureebe led Judiciary has made Kadaga feel so immune from Court processes; she is now disregarding clear Court Orders

    “I know Katureebe cannot say a word because now, he is like a husband who can’t purport to discipline a maid after having a love affair with her, thereby equating her to his wife. Katureebe and the entire Judiciary have allowed Kadaga to use them and she now feels superior to them,” he says.

    Below is Mabirizi’s submission verbatim:

    KATUREEBE’S JUDICIARY GROOMED KADAGA- THE WORST SPEAKER IN THE COMMON WEALTH

    1. On 3rd May 2019, I filed East African Court of Justice Reference No. 6 of 2019 where I stated that “the several actions, directives and/or decisions of all the three organs of Government and State of The Republic of Uganda; the Parliament, The Executive and The Judiciary in conceptualizing, processing, pursuing and upholding of The Uganda Constitution (Amendment) Act 2018 were/are unlawful and/or are infringements of the provisions of The Treaty for Establishment of The East African Community….. contravene and undermine the fundamental and operational principles of the community which include good governance including adherence to the principles of democracy, the rule of law,….” and on 6th April 2020, I filed Reference No. 8 of 2020 stating that “…the several actions, directives and/or decisions of The President, Prime Minister, Minister of Health, Uganda People’s Defence Forces, Uganda Police Force, Parliament, Chief Justice, Head of High Court Civil Division, The Permanent Secretary/Secretary to The Judiciary and Resident District Commissioners between 18th March 2020 until such time when the situation normalizes purportedly termed as measures undertaken to combat and prevent the pandemic of Covid-19(Corona Virus) and several appointments and approval of government officials within the same period were/are unlawful and/or are infringements of the provisions of The Treaty for Establishment of The East African Community…”
    2. Had Ugandans known what was written by DRAGOR HIBER: CORRUPTION IN THE JUDICIARY (SERBIA)-2004: CENTER FOR LIBERAL-DEMOCRATIC STUDIES that “…(Rule of Law is)…the most important public good the state can provide…. …without a sound and functioning judiciary, there is no rule of law. While things are not in order in the court house , the judiciary cannot effectively protect human rights nor can it perform effective supervision over executive and legislative power…A poor protection of human rights, life and property may lead to the appearance of alternative, private mechanisms of protection which usually bring more harm than benefit to the society. The simplest case is when a victimized individual takes justice in his own hands, because he cannot, or believes that he cannot get justice in court…”, they would all have contributed to the fundraising drive I launched via my mobile numbers 0701881231/0779869880 but because of ignorance, almost a year down the road, I have only managed to collect 2% of the required Ugx 394,000,000.
    3. I filed a case against this Corona Virus lock-down earlier because I knew that without any legal foundation, it would end up like a meeting of thieves which normally ends in fights and more thefts so when I saw Kadaga argue with her own invited Legal Advisor Attorney General Byarauhanga, indeed refusing the advise, I had a smile, felt exonerated and recalled what I posted on my facebook account ‘Mabirizi Male’ Kadaga hosted the 64th Common Wealth Parliamentary Conference that “KADAGA IS THE WORST SPEAKER IN THE ENTIRE COMMONWEALTH” where I among others wrote that “If in 1642 the Speaker of UK did not give away MPs, what a hell is Kadaga who gave away MPs to security hooligans then led by fugitive Kayihura in The Age limit Bill? Which kind of Speaker leaves her Chair to let the aggressors trounce, torture, main and degrade MPs and then comes back less than an hour later to chair a blood-stained House with MPs missing because they have been tortured, maimed, degraded and arrested? A day later, Kadaga entertained a motion by Isaac Musumba thanking her for the Job well done. Then she prevents about 75% of MPs from debating after which she breaks the clear Rules of closing the doors at voting and reasons that the space was small yet she takes The House to Serena when the Junta is delivering his ‘State of Dictatorship’ address Every time I read these things in the Hansard, I am meant to think about things which Kadaga does not want to hear. How could she dare do these things? It seems Kadaga’s parliament instead of being in Common Wealth is in ‘Common Violence/Illegalities’. Please do not forget our case in THE EAST AFRICAN COURT OF JUSTICE via 0701881231/0779869880 to set aside The law that came out of these transgressions.”
    4. I know Katureebe cannot say a word because now, he is like a husband who can’t purport to discipline a maid after having a love affair with her, thereby equating her to his wife. Katureebe and the entire Judiciary have allowed Kadaga to use them and she now feels superior to them. On 15th January 2019, I warned Katureebe and 6 of his fellows in age limit case that “It is my opinion that the Uganda Judiciary has been responsible for all Uganda’s political deaths & instability, economic collapse and erosion of our social fabric since 1966 because of its consistent failure to render fair judgments on political contests brought before it, which promoted bad politics which destroyed our economy and social fabric. My Lords, since your judicial power is derived from the people, you have a duty to protect yourselves, children, grandchildren, relatives, in-laws and the country as a whole from the , grave consequences of collapse of rule of law which are like a hail storm which indiscriminately ravages homesteads.”
    5. Because Katureebe had come in Court with a pre-determined mind, he went ahead to uphold the illegal age-limit removal law in whose initial episodes Kadaga had evaded Court scrutiny with the help of Katureebe and his lieutenants:
    6. In 2017, Kavuma, the Deputy Chief Justice, made an interim order restraining Parliament from investigating what was known as the Golden handshake. Kadaga called the order ‘Stupid’ and she went without even a caution from the Courts. The result was wastage of public funds only for the report to be quashed by the High Court with costs against us.
    7. In December 2017, Hon. Ssemuju Nganda, Karuhanga and other MPs sued Kadaga as the Administrative head of Parliament and Judge Oguli summoned her later in the day. Kadaga ordered for arrest of Hon. Ssegona who had gone to serve her the court summons. Later, she hired goons on the day she was supposed to appear in Court, and like what Kayihura had done at Makindye Court in 2016, Kadaga’s goons invaded Court making noise with placards that Kadaga will not appear in Court. Katureebe’s system gave Kadaga a safe landing by the Judge hiding in her Chambers and sending an Acting Assistant Registrar to tell the parties that she had sent the file, which was coming up for hearing, to the Constitutional Court. At a subsequent New Law year day, Kadaga told Katureebe that she cannot accept summons when she is presiding over Parliament.
    8. On 9th April 2018, I made an application at Mbale Constitutional Court to summon Kadaga for examination over her role in the illegal age limit removal and when the five Justices led by Owiny-Dollo adjourned for ruling, a lot happened which I can’t state here but the result was to refuse to summon her without any reason given both at ruling stage and in final Judgment.
    9. At Supreme Court, I filed Application No. 7 of 2018 seeking to adduce additional evidence by summoning Kadaga to which Katureebe refused to hear claiming that my affidavits were too long and without stating what happened outside open Court, Kadaga emerged an artificial victor.
    10. By doing the above, Katureebe- led Judiciary squarely fell in the words of MIAN SAQIB NISAR, former Pakistan Chief Justice in M/S MFMY INDUSTRIES LTD. & 2 Ors V. FEDERATION OF PAKISTAN THROUGH M/O COMMERCE etc. & 2 Ors Pakistan Supreme Court CIVIL APPEALS NO.1646 & 2000/2006 and Civil Petition No.782-K/2009, that “…judiciary which lacks courage to do justice without fear and favour, is biased, suffers from the vice of self-interest, is tardy, indolent and incompetent and has no urge, will, passion and ability to decide the cases/disputes before it expeditiously, it falls in the romance of aggrandizement and populism is a danger to the State and the society.”
    11. Therefore, with the above, the Katureebe led Judiciary has made Kadaga feel so immune from Court processes that she can now disregard a clear Court Orders yet in AMRIT GOYAL VS HARICHAND GOYAL AND 3 OTHERS Court of Appeal Civil Application No.109 of 2004,it was stated that  “A court order is a court order. It must be obeyed as ordered unless set aside or varied. It is not a mere technicality that can be ignored. If we allowed court orders to be ignored with impunity, this would destroy the authority of judicial orders which is the heart of all judicial systems.”
    12. I blame Katureebe’s Judiciary for making Kadaga such a poisonous mushroom to Rule of law unlike the Wambuzi and Odoki-led Judiciary which never tolerated Kadaga’s legal incompetence. In SSEMWOGERERE V. ATTORNEY GENERAL, Constitutional Court Petition No. 3 of 1999, BERKO, Justice of Constitutional Courts had no kind words to Kadaga when he held that “I agree with him that the petition should succeed. I wish, however, to comment on a few aspects of the petition. The first relates to the supplementary affidavit of Hon. Rebecca Kadaga sworn on 12/6/2000 and filed in this court on the same day. The relevant part of the affidavit reads:

    “(2)………………..

    (3)…………………..

    (4) That I can remember most of the members of Parliament who were present in the House on that day and particularly in the afternoon when the Referendum and other Provisions Act 1999 was passed.

    (5)………………………..

    (6) That I have talked to the following and they have confirmed that they were present”

    This was followed by the names of some 102 members of Parliament including the name of Hon. Apollo Nsibambi, the Prime minister of the country. The affidavit continues:

    “(7) That it was clear that there was quorum in the House when the said Act was debated and passed on 1/7/1999….The law with regard to the contents of affidavits is contained in Order 17(3) of the Civil Procedure Rules…..

    It is clear from the above that except in purely interlocutory matters affidavits must be restricted to matters within the personal knowledge of the deponent. They must not be based on information or be expression to such facts as the deponent is able of his own knowledge to prove. Affidavits by persons having no personal knowledge of the facts and merely echoing the statement of claim cannot be used at the hearing…… A constitutional petition is not an interlocutory application. Therefore, an affidavit in support of it must be restricted to facts the deponent is able of his own knowledge to prove and not facts based on information and believe. The rule is so strict that even evidence on information and belief is not admissible…As the supplementary affidavit of Hon. Rebecca Kadaga was based on information given to her by some members of Parliament, it is hearsay and inadmissible to support the petition.”

    1. The reason why you see Byaruhanga struggle to put sense in Kadaga is because after making her illegalities, it is the Attorney General to tussle it out with our ever actively brilliant legal minds in Courts, now East African Court of Justice- not Uganda Courts where Kadaga can easily threaten Judges not to approve their promotions when they rule against her. On 20th December 2020, Mwesigwa Rukuntana the then Deputy Attorney General warned Kadaga on certain illegalities but she overruled him ordering him to sit down as she did to Byaruhanga only for Court to nullify 60% of the Act and I am now working on nullifying the remaining 40% by the East African Court of Justice.
    2. Therefore, I am steadfast that the East African Court of Justice will nullify all this Covid-19 illegalities and robbery be it by Museveni, Kadaga or Katureebe’s team.

    Angels Of Death Strike, Take Two Of Uganda’s VIPs In 2023 Opener

    Published

    on

    Two of Uganda’s Very Important Persons have Monday died.

    National Unity Platform’s parliamentary flag bearer in the last year’s Omoro County by-elections, Simon Toolit Aketcha is dead.

    Toolit, died on Monday morning.

    The news of his death was confirmed by Omoro county MP Andrew Ojok Oulanyah.

    “It is a dark day in Omoro! We have lost one of our gallant sons and former MP, Hon. Simon Toolit Akecha! Hon. Toolit was the MP for Omoro County between 2006 & 2011 and was a candidate in recent by-elections. May his soul rest in eternal peace!” OJok tweeted.

    Toolit put up stiff political resistance against the late Jacob Oulanyah before also competing against his son Andrew Ojok Oulanyah.

    Toolit will be remembered as a candidate to have competed against the Oulanyah’s while holding the flag for two different parties for under ten years.

    In 2016, Toolit, then a candidate of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) contested against NRM’s Jacob Oulanyah and polled 6,823 votes against the latter’s 8,218 votes.

    In the same manner, Uganda’s high commissioner to Kenya and Seychelles, Dr Hassan Galiwango, has died.

    Galiwango died Monday morning at Nairobi Hospital where he had been admitted.

    The late was the husband to Mbale City Woman Member of Parliament, Connie Nakayeze Galiwango.

    President Museveni appointed Galiwango as the high commissioner to Kenya in October 2020.

    Galiwango was also the former long serving director of finance and administration at the NRM secretariat at the time of his ambassadorial appointment. Ms Medina Naham, the NRM party chairperson of Koboko District, replaced him at the secretariat.

    The cause of his death is yet to be communicated by the government.

    Last year, Bank of Uganda governor prof. Emmanuel Tumusiime-Mutebile, Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah and Gen. Elly Tumwine among other VIPs died.

    Five Dead As Bomb Goes Off In Church Near DRC, Uganda Border 

    Published

    on

    A bomb killed at least five people on Sunday after detonating in a church in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the army said.

    Details of the attack remain hazy, but military spokesman Antony Mualushayi said the “terrorist act” happened in a Pentecostal church in North Kivu province’s Kasindi, a town on the border with Uganda.

    Mualushayi later told reporters that at least five bodies had been taken to the morgue following the blast, in what he called a provisional death toll.

    Joel Kitausa, a local civil society figure, put the death toll at eight and said 27 other people had been wounded.

    AFP was unable to independently confirm the toll.

    It was not immediately clear who carried out the attack. Mualushayi said that one suspect — a Kenyan — had been arrested.

    The DRC’s communications ministry said on social media that the attack was apparently carried out by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) group.

    The ADF — which the Islamic State group claims as its affiliate in Central Africa — is active in the Kasindi area.

    It has been accused of slaughtering thousands of Congolese civilians and carrying out bomb attacks in Uganda.

    The ADF has planted bombs in towns in North Kivu in the past.

    Since 2021 a joint Congolese-Ugandan military operation has been targeting the ADF in North Kivu and neighbouring Ituri province.

    Over 120 armed groups roam mineral-rich eastern DRC, many of which are the legacy of regional wars that flared at the turn of the 21st century.

    Nepal Crash: Dozens Killed As Plane Crashes Near Pokhara Airport

    Published

    on

    Dozens of people have been killed after a plane with 72 people on board crashed near an airport in central Nepal.

    The Yeti Airlines flight from Kathmandu to the tourist town of Pokhara crashed on landing before catching fire.

    Videos posted on social media show an aircraft flying low over a populated area before banking sharply.

    At least 68 people are confirmed to have died, officials said. Several critically injured survivors were taken to hospital, unconfirmed reports said.

    Local resident Deeveta Kal told the BBC how she rushed to the crash site after seeing the aircraft plunge from the sky shortly after 11:00am local time (05:15 GMT).

    “By the time I was there the crash site was already crowded. There was huge smoke coming from the flames of the plane. And then helicopters came over in no time,” she said.

    “The pilot tried his best to not hit civilisation or any home,” Deevta Kal added. “There was a small space right beside the Seti River and the flight hit the ground in that small space.”

    The flight set out with 68 passengers on board, including at least 15 foreign nationals, and four crew members.

    According to flight tracking website Flightradar24, the 15-year-old twin-engine ATR 72 stopped transmitting position data at 05:05 GMT and the last signal from the aircraft was received at 05:12.

    Hundreds of Nepalese soldiers were involved in the operation at the crash site in the gorge of the Seti, just one and a half kilometres from the airport.

    The search operation has been suspended for the day, officials say.

    Video taken where the plane came down showed thick billowing black smoke and burning debris.

    “We expect to recover more bodies,” an army spokesman told Reuters, saying the plane “has broken into pieces”.

    Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal called an emergency meeting of his cabinet and urged state agencies to work on rescue operations. A panel to investigate the cause of the crash has been set up.

    Of the passengers, 53 are said to be Nepalese. There were five Indian, four Russians and two Koreans on the plane. There was also one passenger each from Ireland, Australia, Argentina and France among others.

    Aviation accidents are not uncommon in Nepal, often due to its remote runways and sudden weather changes that can make for hazardous conditions.

    A Tara Air plane crashed in May 2022 in the northern Nepalese district of Mustang, killing 22 people.

    In early 2018, 51 people were killed when a US-Bangla flight travelling from Dhaka in Bangladesh caught fire as it landed in Kathmandu.

    The European Union has banned Nepalese airlines from its airspace over concerns about training and maintenance standards in the country’s aviation industry.
