    L-R: Lawyer Nalukoola, Namatovu and Peter Ssematimba

    City lawyer has set promising grounds to be relied upon to win a legal battle against Busiro South legislator Peter Ssematimba over the custody of a ten-year-old daughter who he sired with his maid.

    Ssematimba petitioned the High Court Family Division and asking to be given powers to stay with his ten year old daughter who he sired with a one Joan Namatovu, his former maid.

    In his suit, Ssematimba told court that Namatovu does not have the capacity to provide good education and health for their daughter because she doesn’t have a recognised source of income.

    However, Namatovu’s pro bono lawyers led by Erias Luyimbazi Nalukoola have vowed to put up a suitable legal fight to save her from losing the custody of her daughter.

    Speaking to theGrapevine, lawyer Nalukoola said that Ssematimba lacks moral authority to be given custody of a young girl.

    “You have read what the man did to his maid now how can you leave him with a young girl, we are very sure that court will agree with us and dismiss his entire suit,” Nalukoola said.

    He added that the laws of Uganda state that all parents have equal rights to their children and Ssematimba cannot use his economic status to bulldoze his client and take away her right to stay with her daughter.

    He explained that Ssematimba can still provide the good education and health care he is talking about to his daughter even though she still stays with her mother.

    Nalukoola revealed that they are set to file their defense in two weeks time.

    Namatovu recently told the media that while working at Ssematimba’s home at Lubaga Kampala in 2005, she entered into a love relationship with her boss which bore fruits of a beautiful baby girl.

    She added that before Ssematimba ran to court to take her daughter away, they have been in good talks and he has been seeing their daughter on a regular basis.
