High Court Judge Margret Oguli Oumo has dismissed the case filed by the six Opposition MPs challenging the way in which speaker Rebecca Kadaga suspended them from the house during the age limit bill debate.
In her ruling read by the Deputy Registrar Joy Kabagye, the Judge said she lacked jurisdiction to hear the case since it’s a constitutional matter.
“Consequently this court is compelled to say that this matter is beyond its jurisdiction and needs further interpretation in the high court, says Kabagye.
In the result, I refer this matter to the Constitutional Court and each side should bear it’s costs,” ruled the judge.
The suspended MPs were appearing in court this morning to challenge the manner in which speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga suspended them.
The mps who were suspended by Kadaga include Mp for Kira municipality Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, Munyagwa Mubarak, Gerald Karuhanga, Allan Ssewanyana, Jonathan Odur and Anthony Akol.
