“The evidence on record is sufficient to prove that both the Twitter handles and Facebook Page-Uganda People’s Interests belong to the Respondent-Male Mabirizi and his unique headed or colored and well-designed paper with complaints to Judicial Service Commission and other agencies”, said Ssekaana.
On July 7, 2021, Principal Judge Dr. Flavian Zeija issued a directive to all judicial officers to release original IDs for sureties in their possession saying that the law doesn’t require them to deposit IDs with the court as a condition for granting bail.
In 2021, lawyer Male Mabirizi accused Kyagulanyi of having been admitted at Makerere University to pursue a Diploma in Music, Dance, and Drama on mature-age entry when he reportedly did not meet the criteria.
"Given their past actions as confirmed by International Court of Justice, the entry into and remaining in the Democratic Republic of Congo is likely to be used by UPDF officers and commanders to loot for their personal benefit after which the burden will be sent to Uganda Citizens", reads the application in part.
However, Mabirizi's list excludes other four terrorism suspects who were shot dead during the operation to arrest the suspects implicated in the murder of General Katumba Wamala's daughter Brenda Nantongo and his driver Haruna Kayondo in June 2021 and two others who were gunned down on allegations that they wanted to attack mourners at Lt General Lokech's burial with bombs.
This would bring the total number of terror suspect shot dead within a spate of five months to 12.
The group which says that they filed the petition public interest, contends that Museveni's remarks are unconstitutional and contravenes several articles of the Constitution and International treaties to which Uganda is a signatory.
The DPP has since taken over previous cases Mabirizi levied against Kyagulanyi which are scattered in Kampala and Wakiso Courts and have since stalled after the various government departments' delay to provide him with supporting documents as evidence.
According to the Government of Kenya, the rules of the East African Court state that a document may be expunged from the court record if for stance it may prejudice or delay the fair trial, is an abuse of court process or is scandalous; But to them, Mabirizi doesn't show how he will be prejudiced if their defense is maintained on the court record.
Mabirizi asked court to issue a permanent injunction prohibiting any Uganda Government official from implementing or acting on the strength of the Cabinet decision requiring every motor vehicle to be fitted with tracking devices at owners cost on grounds of its being unconstitutional.
Mabirizi now wants a permanent injuction prohibiting any Uganda Government official from implementing or acting on the strength of the Cabinet decision requiring every motor vehicle to be fitted with tracking devices at owners cost on grounds of being unconstitutional.
In his letter dated June 10 2021, Ssekaana notes that Mabirizi filed a case against the Attorney General and the same was brought to his attention by the Deputy Registrar of the court out of concern that it was the third similar matter filed by him in a space of two weeks.
This is not the first time Mabirizi is complaining about the invasion of parliament by the army. In 2018 after the passing of the Constitutional Amendment Bill, 2018 that removed the age limitations from the Constitution, Mabirizi petitioned national and international courts over the invasion of Special Forces Command that saw a number of MPs being beaten and others injured.
