Event Information: 

Court petitions challenging the legality of the ‘Age Limit’ law were moved from Kampala to Mbale in what the Deputy Chief Justice Alfonse Chigamoy Owiny-Dollo termed as “marathon” hearings.

The petitions against the Constitution Amendment Act were filed in the Constitutional Court in Kampala and were expected to be heard there.

During the heated Parliamentary sessions leading to the enactment of the now contested Constitution Amendment Act, several private citizens and a section of the Opposition lawmakers filed several petitions against Parliament.

In the conferencing at Twed Towers, the official seat of the Constitutional Court, Justice Owiny-Dollo asked the petitioners’ lawyers to agree and consolidate the various petitions for proper hearing.
