The last application in high court demanding the removal from office the three members of Bushenyi district service commission was today morning dismissed by the trial judge, Duncun Gaswaga.
The application was filed by Emmanuel Karasi against Bushenyi local government and the attorney General demanding that the old district service commission chaired by Ldyia Rwakishaya be disbanded and a new one be instituted by the district chairman Jafari Basajjabalaba.
During his ruling, Justice Gaswaga told the applicant, Karasi that he had entered into a consent judgment last year over the same case and even he was paid five million as part of the consent judgement.
Justice Gaswaga dismissed the application with costs. This means that Karasi is supposed to pay costs to Bushenyi local government and the office of the attorney general. The amount of costs will be determined by lawyers from two defense parties.
Today’s judgment confirms that the Rwakishaya commission is valid and can do its work comfortably well unless Karasi or any other person goes back to court to challenge them again.
Last week, the same judge forced Bushenyi district chairman Jafari Basajjabala through a mandamus application by Appollo Lee Kakonge to have the Rwakishaya service commission work.
