Justice David Matovu of the family division of the High Court nullified a consent judgement in a law firm, Wameli & Company Advocates had been given a stake in 250 square miles of Buganda Kingdom land. The same judgement had stated that the 250 square miles were part of the late Ssekabaka Daudi Chwa II estate. In his ruling, the judge argued that the judgment was illegally and wrongfully entered into given that the parties concerned like the Attorney General were not involved. He also said the ruling affected the Kabaka yet he was not party to the said suit which led to the erroneous consent judgment.
He therefore ruled that, the consent judgment of October 25, 2015 which was endorsed by the registrar of court on October 27, 2015 between M/S Wameli & Company Advocates and the assistant commissioner for surveys and mapping was null and void and was set aside.
The Kabaka of Buganda was represented by Kiryowa Kiwanuka of K&K Company Advocates with the help of Buganda Land Board’s legal department while Swabur Marzug represented Wameli.
