The High Court in Kabale has adjourned the ruling in a case in which traders of Kabale Municipal Market are seeking an interim injunction on the traders registration exercise.

The registration of lockup owners by Municipality authorities was to pave way for the reconstruction of a new market. The new market is set to be constructed at a tune of 29 Billion Shillings, under the Markets and Agricultural Trade Improvement program - MATIP III. 

However last year, the traders, under their umbrella Kabale Central Market Traders Association petitioned the High Court demanding for an injunction on the registration exercise until the disagreements with Municipal council are solved.

The traders accused the authorities for carrying out the registration exercise without involving the leadership of the market and failing to share with them the Memorandum of Understanding and market designs for scrutiny.

On Friday, Didas Muhumuza, the Kabale High Court Registrar adjourned the ruling to January 18th.  Muhumuza says that files of both the petitioners and the defendant are still being scrutinized. 

Muhumuza also set January 14th, 2018 for both parties to appear before court to choose mediators in the main application.

Simon Mashemererwa, the Chairperson of Kabale Central Market Traders Association says that they are ready to fight for their rights.
