Justice Kavuma in another interim order saga

Deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma has named himself among a panel of five judges to rule whether a single Constitutional court judge can issue interim orders.

Justice Kavuma has been on the forefront after issuing several controversial interim orders including interim order restraining Parliament or any person from investigating UGX6bn awarded to 42 government officials & halting prosecution of IGP Kale Kayihura over torture charges among others.

The Constitutional Court on February 23, 2017, declared null and void all interim orders it previously issued, saying they were made in contravention of the constitution.

The land mark decision was delivered by three Hon. Justices of the Court; Hon. Justice Kenneth Kakuru, Hon. Justice Fredrick Egonda Ntende and Hon. Lady Justice Elizabeth Musoke.
