Justice Esther Kisakye, one of the 9 judges of the Supreme Court on Thursday came out to accuse her colleagues led by Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo of confiscating her judgment.
In a dramatic incident unheard of in the Judiciary, Kisakye told reporters that the Chief Justice didn’t want her to deliver her dissenting judgment in the case in which Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine challenged the presidential elections of January 14th.
“I informed the court that I will be delivering my consolidated rulings on the four applications. My colleagues have opted not to attend this afternoon session,” Justice Kisakye said, adding that she was surprised that her colleagues opted to shun the afternoon session.
She further noted that the box containing her ruling had been confiscated on the orders of Chief Justice Dollo.
Justice Kisakye made the remarks while sitting alone in the courtroom after the court break.
Court went into a short break before returning to complete a reading of the reasons for their rulings on several aspects of Mr. Kyagulanyi’s withdrawn petition.
