KABAKA VS MABIRIZI: Court Accepts To Hear Mabirizi’s Shs13bn Claims From Kabaka

Court of Appeal judge Kenneth Kakuru has allowed the court of Appeal to hear an application filed by city lawyer Male Mabirizi claiming Shs13bn from Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II, the Kabaka of Buganda. Kakuru dismissed submissions from Christopher Bwanika, Kabaka’s lead counsel that the court of Appeal is wasting its time to hear Mabirizi’s application for costs of shs13bn. “My lord, this is total waste of Court’s time because a panel of justices of this Court declared that the suit before you didn’t have merit before the law and dismissed it with costs. So, my lord, it is illegal since the main suit was dismissed with Costs to the respondent,” Bwanika submitted.

Bwanika added that High Court Judge Peter Adonyo also dismissed the case. However, the applicant Mabirizi insisted that his application was properly filled before the court of Appeal. He added that the reason why they are before Court is to determine whether his case has merit before the law.

“My lord, we are here for court to determine whether my Appeal in law stands, why doesn’t Mr. Bwanika want the application to be heard?” he submitted. Justice Kakuru asked Bwanika to confirm whether they have appealed against Justice Patricia Basaaza Wasswa’s order against Kabaka to discover all the land titles returned to Buganda from Central government since 1993, Bank accounts where money collected by Buganda Land Board is deposited and the number of people sitting on the kingdom’s land. Bwanika admitted that it’s true they appealed against the order; he was then asked by Kakuru whether they withdraw their appeal before hearing.

He accepted that they withdrew the appeal. The judge then said that the court has locus the hear Mabirizi’s claim of shs13bn for costs because they were awarded to him by a competent court after Kabaka refused to disclose to him his wealth.  He said that the hearing of the application shall start in January 2018 before three justices of the court of appeal. Mabirizi is also still battling in supreme court to see that it nullifies what the three justices of the Court of appeal, led by justice Egonda Ntende did when they dismissed his suit due to lack of merit before the law. Justice Adonyo based on this judgement to dismiss Mabirizi’s case which was at the high court where he claims that the Kabaka is not the owner of the kingdom’s land and he is just a trustee keeping it for Baganda. He also wanted Court to order Kabaka to return all rent collected from tenants on the kingdom’s land.

Museveni Commissions Wargame Centre At Kimaka…

Published

on

President Museveni has commissioned a wargame centre at the Uganda Senior Command and Staff College in Kimaka, Jinja District.
Speaking at the occasion, the President thanked the army, the training teams and the Indian Association of Uganda who mobilised to build the center, saying it will definitely contribute to the quality of training.
‘This centre is also a great gesture of the wider cooperation and support we enjoy with the government and the people of India’’
The President hailed the relationship between the UPDF and the Indian army which he said has a lot of knowledge, experience and heroism.
“Our relationship with India has existed for centuries. We were colonised together by a small group of people who came from Europe, but when we all woke up, and the small groups ran away.
During that time, we fought together first against the Japanese in Burma. The heroic Indians are the ones who stopped the westward expansion of Japan at the famous battle of Kohima.


Mahatma Ghandi struggled with our elders against colonialism, Jawaharlal Nehru too struggled with our elders against colonialism and now we are working with Prime Minister Narendera Modi. I salute the Indian political class for choosing to always work with us.
The epitome of India’s importance to Uganda is engraved in the fact that Mahatma Ghandi’s ashes were immersed in Jinja.
President Museveni commended the the Indian Community in Uganda, for its contribution to building Uganda through business and investment.
The Uganda Senior Command and staff college is a training facility for senior commanders in the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF), including the army, air force and Special Forces

WHAT ARE WAR GAMES?
War games also known as military simulations are simulations in which theories of warfare can be tested and refined without the need for actual hostilities. Military simulations are seen as a useful way to develop tactical, strategical and doctrinal solutions.
Simulations exist in many different forms, with varying degrees of realism. In recent times, the scope of simulations has widened to include not only military but also political and social factors, which are seen as inextricably entwined in a realistic warfare model.

“On Monday 18th May, when the President made his speech on easing the lockdown, I felt that many issues were not addressed well. I have picked only three – Schools, Public transport and small businesses – for today, to respond. I have made mention of their status and presented a number of Proposals for us and the state to consider,” he said.

Here is his video:
