Three judges of the Court of Appeal Justices Geoffrey Kiryabwire, Elizabeth Musoke and Irene Mulyagonja on Tuesday halted the proceedings pending the determination of an appeal by Lubwama on whether a person can be allowed to file an election petition outside the stipulated 60 days.
The new panel comprises Justices Geoffrey Kiryabwire, Irene Mulyagonja and Elizabeth Musoke. It was constituted by the Acting Chief justice Alfonse Owiny–Dollo after the legal teams of both parties declined to receive a judgment by Justice Cheborion in May 2019.
Today, as the deadline elapsed, with no response to his request, Buwembo staged a protest at the High Court Criminal Division. With a bag in one hand, a mat, a pair of bedsheets and a pillow in another, Buwembo started a protest affixed with a hunger strike to reportedly send a message of dissatisfaction to the judiciary.
