Uganda’s Supreme Court on Thursday morning granted the four Members of Parliament (MPs) who were expelled from the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party an order quashing the constitutional court order throwing them out of the National Assembly.
Early this year, the Constitutional Court ordered lawmakers; Mr Sekikubo (Lwemiyaga), Mr Muhammed Nsereko (Kampala Central), Mr Wilfred Niwagaba (Ndorwa East) and Mr Barnabas Tinkasimire (Buyaga County) out of parliament and declared their seats vacant.
The legislators through their lawyers asked court to stay the implementation of the orders.
On Thursday, seven Supreme Court judges led by Wilson Sekkokko said the appeal before them has relevance given the evidence filed in to back it.
The MPs were expelled from the ruling National Resistance Movement last year by the party’s Central Executive Committee chaired by President Yoweri Museveni for alleged indiscipline.
