Comic City Lawyer Mabirizi drags Museveni to East African Court

Funny man and Lawyer Hakim Male Mabirizi is set to overturn a ruling by the Ugandan Supreme Court that permitted President Museveni to run again for President in 2021.

Mabirizi has opted to take President Museveni to the East African Court of Justice in Arusha to challenge his eligibility before judges Monica Mugenyi, Charles Nyawello and Charles Nyacha will make a determination.

The President’s fate now hangs in balance over his age, after Parliament dramatically in 2017 moved to remove the age cap Article 102(b) of the Uganda Constitution.

Mabirizi has made a name out of his unpopular lawsuits including a suit against the Buganda Monarch Kabaka Mutebi over land and he recently threatened to parade Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi to court over his age.

He is also known for parading stacks of documents before court trials.
