The high court Judge Esther Kisakye, who gave a divergent verdict upholding the presidential election victory of National Unity Platform party presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine is in total trouble.
Justice Kisakye in her verdict while nullifying the victory of NRM presidential candidate Yoweri Museveni said the 2021 polls were mired with an avalanche of irregularities.
The International Commission of Jurists has now picked interest in the matter after learning the justice Kisakye’s verdict landed her in trouble and led to the scrapping of her salary and benefits.
According to the ICJ, Justice Kisakye’s woes started when the runner up of the 2021 presidential elections, Mr Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, petitioned the court where she sits.
The international justice body goes on to contend that while Justice Esther Kisakye was delivering her dissenting judgment, which was covered by the members of the press on March 18, 2021.
She claimed Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo, had attempted to obstruct her from handing down her dissenting judgment.
Justice Kisakye then heaped blame on the Chief Justice whom she accused of ordering the confiscation of her file. She, however, said she would not delve into detail of what she described as internal matters of the country’s highest court of appeal.
Mr Ramjathan Kaajal, the director of ICJ Africa in a statement said: “ICJ is concerned about these reports as they suggest violations of Uganda’s obligations, under African and universal international human rights law, to ensure due process and the right to a fair hearing for any person accused of criminal or ethical misconduct.
