Erias Lukwago statement on Court Proceedings at Makindye Military Court on the 9th February 2016 on Gen. Sejusa

Erias Lukwago Makindye Military Court

The experience in the General Court Martial today was yet another episode of melodrama characterising that kangaroo tribunal. I may not be in position to share all the epic events of the day for obvious reasons but I can’t help relating to you a novel legal phenomenon enunciated by the Military officers prosecuting Gen. Ssejusa. When I presented myself as a surety, the said team, together with the Judge Advocate, put up a vehement opposition, on a fallacious ground that a civilian is not legally competent to stand surely for a four star Military General! !!. That it’s only a fellow General, or army officer of a superior rank who’s competent to do that. Ironically, the chairman of the General court martial, Levy Karuhanga is a Major General. Anyway, the matter is pending a ruling that will be delivered after the presidential election. Talk of justice made in Uganda!!!

Gen. Sejusa back to Makindye Military Court as his trial resumes; Free Uganda statement on the matter

David Sejusa TV

Free Uganda is closely watching on-goings in Museveni’s Kangaroo court, and will issue a statement after the day’s proceedings are closed.

FU fully concurs with the statement by the FU Chairman’s lawyers that “the military courts is facing a huge embarrassment” should they chose to abuse the natural and constitutional rights of our Comrade David Sejusa.

On a more serious note, all these political game-plays by dictator Museveni will soon end when the People of Uganda finally free the country from the absurd and wholly detestable repression of the Museveni regime.

In the same vain, Free Uganda rededicates itself to the People’s Struggle, and swears to stand firm, shoulder to shoulder with the People of Uganda, in the noble cause of campaigning to put an end to the gross injustices of the past 3 decades.

A Luta Continua.

That was the Statement from the Free Uganda,here is som news-reels: 

“BREAKING: General Court Martial rules that it has jurisdiction to try General David Sejusa despite High Court case, insisting the renegade former spy chief is still a serving military officer” (NBS TV, 09.02.2016).

More to come!

The EFF and the National Assembly of ZA statements – On the suspended of Members of Parliament(MPs)

28 November 2014

The EFF will be approaching the court for an urgent interdict against parliament’s illegal decision to suspend its leadership. Parliament has not issued letters of suspension to the EFF MPs yet, and thus the EFF awaits these letters in order to file court papers. Members of the public shall be kept updated on the developments moving forward.

The EFF reiterates that it shall never apologise for asking Jacob Zuma as to when is he paying back the money. Furthermore, the EFF remains very proud of its MPs for restoring teeth to parliamentary executive oversight. We shall approach the courts because we believe that in front of a sober judge, with no Luthuli mandate, and an uncontrollable ambition for promotion for a ministerial job, our action will be vindicated. The court will confirm that the EFF went through a Kangaroo Court in serious violation of principles of natural justice.

SUSPENSION, FINE NOTICES SENT TO ECONOMIC FREEDOM FIGHTERS’ MEMBERS

Parliament, Friday 28 November 2014 – Letters of suspension and notices of fines were sent today to members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) found guilty of contempt of Parliament.

This follows the adoption by the National Assembly (NA) yesterday of the report of the Powers and Privileges Committee on the hearing into allegations of conduct constituting contempt of Parliament by Members of the NA.

The hearing, led by independent initiator Mr Randall van Voore, was held following the disruption of NA proceedings on 21 August, during President Jacob Zuma’s oral reply session in the House.

Six members of the EFF – Mr F Shivambu, Mr P Ramakatsa, Mr J Malema, Ms K Litchfield-Tshabalala, Mr G Gardee and Mr M Ndlozi – were suspended for 30 days with no pay.

Another six EFF Members were suspended for 14 days without pay – Ms E Louw, Ms R Mashabela, Ms O Maxon, Ms M Moonsamy, Mr A Mngxitama and Mr N Matiase.

Eight EFF Members were each fined an amount equivalent to 14 days’ salary and allowances – Mr B Joseph, Mr S Mbatha, Mr Z Morapela, Ms S Khawula, Ms A Matshobeni, Ms V Nqweniso, Ms P Ntobongwana and Ms P Sonti.

The suspensions take effect from today. The 30 days’ suspensions expire on 28 December and the 14 days’ suspensions expire on 12 December.

Suspended members are prohibited from entering Parliament or from participating in any activity of Parliament or its committees without written permission of the Speaker. They are also not entitled to any allowances under the Remuneration of Public Office Bearers Act for the duration of their suspensions.
