The Magistrate’s court in Kasangati will hear the case in which FDC presidential candidate in the recent elections Dr Kizza Besigye sued the IGP Kale Kayihura and Kampala North regional Commander) challenging his continuous detention at home.
The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mr Mike Chibita had asked court to throw out the suit claiming that the claimant should not have sued the two parties since they are acting in their official positions. The DPP also argued that the same case is before high court which makes the magistrate’s court devoid of merit to handle it.
But in her ruling on Monday, Grade One Magistrate Prossy Katushabe said Besigye was right to sue the IGP and RPC before asking Besigye’s lawyer David Mpanga to file his submissions at 3pm.
Ms katushabe also added that she will make her ruling on Tuesday (Tomorrow) at 10am.
Dr Kizza Besigye has been confined to his home since the presidential elections ended, with police claiming that his detention is only his fault since he intends to disrupt peace and security of the nation through use of language that incites violence.
