Sebalamu Vs Nalwoga (CIVIL APPEAL No. 14 OF 2017) [2018] UGSC 54 (17 December 2018);


Search Summary: 

This was a succession matter in which the
appellant with the deceased sisters applied and
obtained letters of administration for the estate
of the deceased. The sisters later died and the
appellant was challenged as the administrator
of the estate and the high court stated that the
administration of the estate had been done in a
proper manner. The respondents appealed to
the court of appeal and the court of appeal held
that since the appellant hadn’t given a proper

account of the estate administration, they
couldn’t be allowed to continue administering
the estate. That decision is the subject of the

Headnote and Holding: 

The court held that the court erred in listing the
beneficiaries from the affidavit and not the
will. That the filing of the statement of account
in 2002 when the letters of administration had
been given in 1999 offended the succession
Act and the result would be revoked
