Abel Bizimana, the Kisoro LC5 chairman has dragged to court the district RDC Captain Peter Mugisha, accusing him of defamation.
Bizimana through his lawyers of Mutungi & Co. Advocates claims in the case now before Kisoro Chief Magistrates Court, that while appearing on an evening radio program named “Torch”, Mugisha described him in Rukiga and Rufumbira languages as a liar, sectarian, untrustworthy, and a disobedient leader.
The RDC allegedly made these claims back in May this year on Kisoro FM.
“Bizimana says the utterances make made him appear evil in the eyes of the right thinking residents.
He adds that the utterances have since had a negative effect on him as a political figure in Kisoro district, particularly in this electioneering season.
As such, he wants court to award him general and exemplary damages, and for the RDC to issue him a public apology.
Court is yet to set the date of the hearing of the case.
