Lukyamuzi’s application flops

 

The hearing of an application filed by the President of Conservative Party, John Ken Lukyamuzi seeking compensation of 100 million shillings from government has flopped today. 

Lukyamuzi filed an application before constitutional court seeking compensation from the state on allegations that the president willfully neglected his duties of appointing justices of the Supreme Court. 

Lukyamuzi says president Museveni’s failure to appoint Supreme Court justices violated his freedom and rights.

Lukyamuzi had filed an appeal before Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of his removal from parliament and denial of the right to contest in 2006 general elections.

Lukyamuzi won the appeal but he claims that his appeal took long because of president’s failure to appoint the justices of Supreme Court.

Two justices of the constitutional court Alice Bahigeine and Steven Kavuma adjourned the application to the next session due to failure of other three justices to appear in court for hearing of the said application.
