court directs Ssegona to obtain practicing certificate from the Uganda Law council as the grace period for renewal ended on 1st or temporary one by chief registrar to expire on 18th/March so as to have audience before court.
we can go like…. Kyagulanyi’s lawyers not given audience to present withdrawal petition before Supreme court due to lack of practicing certificates . Chief justice Owiny-Dollo directs they get temporary certificates from chief registrar and court resumes by tomorrow morning.
This is after Kyagulanyi’s lead lawyer Medard Ssegona informed the justices on the panel that him and his other 2 colleagues prosecuting the application have not had their practicing certificates certificate this year renewed Yet they applied to the Law council and the grace period lapsed by 1st /March.
This has prompted the chief justice to deny Ssegon and his team audience directing that they either obtain practicing certificates by 5pm today or take up the matter with the chief administrator of courts to have temporary certificates running until 18th/March for purposes of completing this petition.
