Rebel MPs Dragged to Court

Four Law firms have dragged MPs Theodore Sekikubo, site Barnabas Tinkasimire, Muhammad Nsereko and Wilfred Nuwagaba to the High Court accusing them of failing to pay 8 billion shillings in legal fees.

This money they say, arises from  representations and submissions made by Victoria Advocates and Legal Consultants, Kwesigabo, Bamwine and Walubiri advocates, Lukwago and Company Advocates and Alaka and Company Advocates; on behalf of the so called NRM Rebel MPs in both the Constitutional and Supreme courts during the period of  2014-2015.

The law firms claim that they were instructed by the MPs to file defenses and appeals in cases where their party NRM wanted them to vacate their seats in parliament on grounds that it had expelled them due to indiscipline.

These firms allege that although they filed numerous documents and engaged in extensive research plus making many appearances, the MPs up to now refused to pay for these services

The MPs according to the firms, disregard 30 days they were given to have this matter resolved amicably which prompted them to seek court’s intervention.

The High Court’s deputy registrar Alex Ajiji has already notified all the parties that he will preside over this application for  bill of costs on the 15th/November 2016.
