Musinguzi v Amama Mbabazi & Anor (Election Petition No. HCT -o5-CV-EPA-0003 of 2001) [2002] UGHC 1 (5 February 2002);


Search Summary: 

This is a ruling on the objection raised by the first respondent. The ground is that the first respondent’s counsel has lost a case before the sitting judge and thus objects to his hearing of the matter as my impartiality is questioned unless an assurance is supplied to the first respondent that he would not have problems in this matter. Counsel left the matter to the conscious and judgement of the judge.


Headnote and Holding: 

Court held that an assurance beyond the judicial oath cannot be given.
