A panel of five Constitutional Court justices has dismissed an application filed by former Rubaga North Aspirant Singh Katongole accusing MP Moses Kasibante of uttering racial slurs against him which is against the constitution of Uganda.
In 2011, Singh petitioned the Constitutional Court accusing Kasibante of threatening to harm him and the whole Indian Community allegedly using his militia.
The justices who included Egonda Ntende, Elizabeth Musoke, Cheborion Burishaki, Muzamir Kibeddi and Irene Mulyagonja have not made any order for costs.
The matter came up for hearing today Tuesday October 6, however, Singh and his lawyers of Akampumuza and Company Advocates, absconded from the session. It should be noted that early this month, they had applied to have the matter dismissed.
The lawyers representing Kasibante Moses, Electoral Commission and the Attorney General didn’t object to the withdrawal.
In the same petition, Singh said that Kasibante formed a militia, “an armed forces of Rubaga North”, which he sent to harm him.
He further alleged that being a commander in chief of the said militia, Kasibante issued orders to kill him(Singh) and other Indians. However, in response to this, Kasibante denied all the allegations.
