Court of Appeal: NRM’s Tumusiime Retains Entebbe Municipality Seat

Court of Appeal: NRM’s Tumusiime Retains Entebbe Municipality Seat

The Court of Appeal has blocked a move by Democratic Party’s Michael Kakembo to file an election petition, challenging the election of Rosemary Tumusiime, as Entebbe Municipality Member of Parliament.

In their joint ruling on Wednesday, the three justices led by Deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma allowed an application by Tumusiime for dismissing an election petition filed against her by his rival Kakembo because it was filed out of time.

Other justices were Elizabeth Musoke and Hellen Obura.

According to the justices, Kakembo’s lawyer conceded to his failure to comply with the court order, directing them to file an application within seven days.
