Police in Kazo are investigating a case in which retired Gen. Elly Tumwine allegedly blocked court bailiffs and police from implementing a court order.
A case was opened against Tumwine on Thursday at Kazo police station by Paul Beigana, a court bailiff. Tumwine is accused of obstructing a court order directing Steven Rwanyabushozi to open an access road.
According to Beigana the court order was cleared by the directorate of police legal services in Kampala and the regional police commander allowing the Kazo district police commander to witness its execution in Burunga Sub County.
ASP Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi region police mouthpiece confirmed the incident saying the bailiffs who were in the company of the police officers from Kazo police station were intercepted by military vehicles along the Kazo-Rwemikoma road at the junction that heads to Tumwine’s home and stopped from executing the court order.
Kasasira said the court order resulted from a judgment by the Kazo chief magistrate that pronounced itself on November 21, 2021, in a civil case where Grace Kakirenga the complainant accused her son Steven Rwanyabushozi, the defendant, of blocking an access road to her home.
The court ruling was in favour of Kakirenga, ordering Rwanyabushozi to unblock the access road and also awarded costs of Shs 24 million to Kakirenga, however, Rwanyabushozi defied court orders and subsequently, a warrant of arrest was issued.
Paul Beigana, the court bailiff noted that when they were intercepted by military vehicles, Tumwine told them to hand over the court order and other documents that included a warrant of arrest and directed them to leave the area immediately.
