According to the Court records seen by our reporter, Barisigara was the Club Entertainment Sub-Committee Chairperson while Kagimu was co-opted as a member of the organizing committee for the end-of-year party.
"What made it even grave is that the said money was meant for Northern Uganda post-war rehabilitation, the said region having gone through decades of war and trauma. Any person believed to have tampered with the said aid, in the eyes of reasonable and right thinking members of society would be equated to a mass murderer”, said Justice Ssekaana.
Ssekaana recused himself from the matter when the lawyers representing Uganda Law Society, Civil Society Organisations and the Environmental Shield Limited, and Resource Human Rights Africa Limited appeared before him for the hearing of the matter.
It is alleged that Mudhasi had conspired with lawyers Akleo Mugisha and Martha Orishaba, and the RAM Engineering Company Director Julius Mugambagye to defraud Makerere University of 3.5 billion shillings among other allegations.
Isabirye was interdicted for allegedly forging the signature of his supervisor Alex Omara Apitta the Commissioner for Physical Education and Sports and requisitioned for funds amounting to 20,728, 200 shillings.
Ssekaana thus declared the said forced leave illegal and made no any orders affecting Osinde’s employment saying that he is no longer in the same employment since it was terminated in other court proceedings.
In his letter dated June 10 2021, Ssekaana notes that Mabirizi filed a case against the Attorney General and the same was brought to his attention by the Deputy Registrar of the court out of concern that it was the third similar matter filed by him in a space of two weeks.

In his ruling dated 18th December 2020 delivered by mail, Justice Ssekaana found that the applicants had a legitimate expectation that government would deliver on the commitment. But, he declined to issue an Order of Mandamus saying, enforcement of the commitment cannot be through issuance of the order.
The lawyers led by Faisal Mularila and Alvin Jabbo noted that the decision to revoke the company's license stemmed from allegations by Bank of Africa against the bureau for alleged involvement in illicit transactions, which caused the bank a loss of colossal sums of money.
“But the case at hand is about charging the applicants members with fees without any legislation. The KCCA has been illegally collecting taxes based on City Outdoor Advertising Policy. This is erroneous and illegal. Taxes, levies or charges are imposed by law duly enacted and policy of KCCA,” said Ssekaana.
