The judiciary says it will summon Rubaga South MP Kato Lubwama outside court and engage him.
Solomon Muyita, the Communication officer Judiciary, was discussing a court demonstration which saw Lubwama’s support camp at High Court during his last appearance at the close of last month.
Muyita said court demos were a growing trend saying politicians are organising these people who participate in them.
“These demonstrations don’t affect the court ruling however they distract other activities,” Muyita said.
“We are going to summon Hon. Lubwama outside court and administration will engage him in further discussions.”
Muyita said judiciary now has the finances for the petition appeals and they expect them to start next week.
“35 files of the 97 are ready,” he revealed.
In their court siege, Lubwama’s supporters accused FDC official Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda, also the Kira municipality MP, of having an invisible hand behind the court case.
“Ssemujju Nganda, fitina yaki ku Baganda banno,” [Ssemujju, why are you conspiring against your fellow Baganda?].
They accused FDC of fighting Lubwama for defending parliament’s decision to give each MP Shs 200million to purchase vehicles.
Meanwhile, The Observer reported that Lubwama is no longer welcome to opposition leader Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home in Kasangati.
A Rubaga South voter Habib Buwembo filed an application against his area MP Paul Kato Lubwama seeking permission to file out of time an election petition to expel Lubwama out of parliament for lack of requisite academic qualifications.
Buwembo wants Makerere University to avail him with policies regarding its mature age entry examinations so as to establish whether Lubwama sat and passed these exams before being admitted for a Diploma in Music Dance and Drama in 1992.
The voter also accuses the University for failing to produce the Diploma certificate it awarded to Kato Lubwama.
