Kampala stooge lawyer Male Mabiriizi’s case against the Kabaka has been dismissed with costs. The Kabaka, represented, by his effective Attorney General, Owek Christopher Bwanika won the case at the ruling delivered by Justice Percy Night Tuhaise of the Court of Appeal.
Owek Bwanika is to now indicate how much it has cost and submit to court. With Mabiriizi’s financial muscle so weak, most likely he (Mabiriizi) will end up in prison as he must now meet these hefty costs.
Mabiriizi has been filing one case after another in a bid to embarrass the Kabaka and cause disrepute among Kabaka’s subjects. In the end, Male Mabiriizi wanted to boost his image as a superb lawyer. His funders and he will now understand the cost of such litigation.
Justice Tuhaise ruled that “courts of law exist to address real disputes rather than academic ones to ensure that both parties have a full stake in the outcome, but also because it is not worthwhile for this Court to allocate its scarce judicial resources to adjudicate and resolve a moot issue when there are numerous deserving real legal disputes to resolve.”
She added that “in that respect, the respondent’s preliminary point of law is sustained and consequently this reference is dismissed with costs.”

She concluded the judgement by saying that “consequently, for the reasons given, it will not be necessary to deliberate on the merits of the reference, much as the parties had made submissions on the same, since it is now in the limbo of legal mootness.” This is an embarrassment for Mabiriizi and his funders and a cause of jubilation for the Kabaka and his legal team.
It will be noted that since Owek Bwanika took over this docket from an ineffective Daudi Mpanga who was Attorney General, Kabaka is winning these cases against Mabiriizi. During Mpanga’s time as Attorney and Apolo Makubuya as Minister of Constitutional Affairs, Kabaka was being sued all the time and there was no effective representation. Some sources says Mpanga and Makubuya were happy to see the Kabaka being dragged to court to achieve their own agenda.
