Why Kanyeihamba Sued Rebel MPs

sale sans-serif; color: #222222;”>According to the professor, doctor he was the lead counsel in defending Theodore Ssekikubo (Lwemiyaga County), Barnabas Tinkasimire (Buyaga), Wilfred Nuwagaba (Ndorwa East) and Muhammad Nsereko before the Constitutional Court who were on the brink of being kicked out of Parliament following their expulsion by the ruling party over alleged indiscipline.

In his suit filed before the Civil Division of the High Court in Kampala, the retired Judge asserts that the respondents (rebel MPs) instructed him through his law firm Kanyeihamba & Co. advocates to represent them in the constitutional petitions 16 and 21 of 2003 and constitutional applications No.14 and 23 of 2003 in the consideration of normal professional fees.

He added that his firm invoiced the rebel MPs for the professional legal services rendered but the respondents refused to pay for the services and explained that the fees ranged from instruction, perusal, drawing and preparing answers to petition fees and hours of court attendance fees among others.

A few months ago, Kanyeihamba caused chaos in the Supreme Court after being mysteriously thrown out of a case involving the rebel MPs and replaced with Peter Walubiri, Caleb Alaka, Jude Mbabaali and Julius Galisonga.

“Has a coup d’état taken place against me? Can anybody tell me what happened to my application that I filled because I am no longer part of this application!” wondered the former judge as he threw the court room into laughter before being asked to leave the court.


Kanyeihamba added: “I must bring to attention of this court that my life is being threatened because my application disappeared mysteriously. None of my colleagues has informed me or written to me about this development and whoever withdrew my application forged my mind.”
