    Kampala Metropolitan traffic police commander Norman Musinga has challenged the caveat filed by his divorced wife before the Church of Uganda protesting his new marriage.

    On Friday evening, Esther Kyinkuhaire, the former wife to Musinga, through her lawyers of Ojok and Company Advocates, filed a marriage caveat at All Saints Church Nakasero, Kampala challenging the set officialization of Musinga’s new marriage with his new wife.

    In his caveat, Kyinkuhaire told the church that she is still officially married to Musinga citing a notice of  Appeal she filed in the Court of Appeal challenging Justice Joseph Mulangira’s decision confirming the magistrate court’s judgement which authorizes their divorce.

    However, Musinga through his lawyers of Kampala Associated Advocates (KAA) challenged the said caveat, branded it false, malicious, full of jealousy, ill willed and  made in bad faith and needed correction from the court records.

    The lawyers stated that Musinga’s marriage with Kyinkuhaire was dissolved in 2019 by his worship Allan Gakyalo basing on the evidence of the applicant Musinga that his divorced wife was very cruel to him and a practitioner of witchcraft.

    “On 16th of August 2019, the bonds of matrimony were legally and absolutely dissolved. No appeal has ever been preferred,” KAA’s letter to the church reads. They further explained to court that Musinga solemnized his fresh marriage before the Registrar of marriages and is legally married.

    Lawyers noted that the reason why they decided to go to church was to celebrate his already existing marriage in accordance to the church norms and seek the blessings of God.

    The lawyers further insisted that when the divorced wife learnt that her former husband was going to celebrate his marriage in church, she filed an application at the High Court Family Division for revision of his worship Gakyalo’s decision which they termed as incompetent, court dismissed it.

    They insisted that revision of the judgement does not amount to an appeal since they claimed that the magistrate did not have powers to hear and determine the matter.

    “The incompetent application was dismissed by the High Court Judge Justice Joseph Murangira who found that the magistrate acted properly in freeing our client from the bonds of the marriage with Esther Kyinkuhaire,” the lawyers noted.

    They said that there is no right to appeal from a revised order, the appeal can only be made with a permission from the court which the divorced wife didn’t do.

    However, this website has learnt that Kyinkuhaire is determined to fight for her marriage and she is set to file another civil suit in the High Court protesting Court’s decision of not looking into the wealth she made with her former husband during their good times.

    She based on the affidavit of her father who told court that he gave the couple 25 cows when they are getting marriage and he wanted Musinga to return half of it to her daughter since they are separating.

    She also based on the affidavit of  Stephen Kamanzi, a former farm manager of Musinga who told court that Musinga took the 25 cows to his farm in Luwero.

    Kamanzi added that by the time Musinga fired him, for supporting Kyinkuhaire, the cows had produced over 180 cows.

    Kyinkuhaire also challenged Court’s decision of directing Musinga to stay with their three children including their last born.

    Musinga is set to publicly weed her new wife today.

    Senior Judge Directs IGP Ochola Not To Delete Fired Traffic Police Boss From Payroll…

    Published

    on

    Senior High Court Civil Division Judge has directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Martin Okoth Ochola not to delete the name of the fired traffic police boss from the police payroll.

    Justice Micheal Elubo, the head of the Civil Division High Court Kampala has issued an interim order restraining the police authority from deleting name of Sgt. Ibrahim Ssesanga, police officer No.335544, who was fired by the police’s appellant disciplinary court on grounds of causing the death of Hussein Walugembe, a bodaboda cyclist in Masaka City.

    Justice Elubo agreed with Ssesanga’s lawyers led by Akram Matovu of Matovu, Katerega and Company Advocates that he will suffer a lot if his name is scrapped from the payroll when his main suit challenging the decision by the police’s Appellant disciplinary Court is not yet determined by the high court.

    The police force through Mark Walugembe from the Attorney General’s Chambers didn’t object after claiming that he received the legal instructions very late and didn’t get enough time to respond to Ssesanga’s application concerning the interim order.

    Ssesanga ran to the High Court and challenged the decision by the police’s Appellate Court to dismiss him from the force without being given a fair hearing.

    He was dismissed from the force after being accused of causing the death of Walugembe who burnt himself after police confiscated his motorcycle and asked him for a bribe for violating the guidelines put in place to fight the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

    Journalists Want Police Boss Ochola To Resign Over His Reckless Statements…

    Published

    on

    Journalists under Uganda Journalists Association (UJA) want the Inspector General of police (IGP) Martin Okoth Ochola to resign over his reckless statements against journalist yesterday.

    In a statement signed by Mathiaus Rukundo, the newly elected association president insists that Ochola’s statement concerning the brutality against journalists who cover opposition politicians in the ongoing political campaigns was an instructions to his subordinates to continue assaulting journalists.

    “That you being the head of the Uganda Police Force, all statements you make are taken as instructions to your subordinates and in the same vein seen to qualify, justify and sanction further actions of torture, violence and total abuse of human rights and freedoms of journalists by police which puts mass media and journalism as a whole, which is a fundamental pillar in free and democratic society, at risk in Uganda,” Rukundo noted.

    He added that Ochola’s statements are unbecoming and not befitting of his position as IGP in such times when the country is at the climax of a political season which has been characterised by visible actions of violence and torture by police which have even resulted into loss of lives and left many journalists hospitalised.

    Rukundo said that Ochola’s statements are not only derogatory in nature but also disregard basic fundamental human rights, rule of law and contravene conventional principles of international laws.

    Rukundo noted in the letter that with immediate effect, Ochola should retract and withdraw his impugned statements or resign.

    He warned that if the IGP does not heed to their demands he is ready to seek help from the appointing authority who is president Yoweri Museveni.

    He further threatened that journalists are also thinking of taking legal action against Ochola in his personal capacity, not as head of police.

    On Friday in the security joint briefing at Naguru police headquarters in Kampala, Ochola disclosed that police sometimes beats journalists to protect them.
