This is not the first time Mabirizi is complaining about the invasion of parliament by the army. In 2018 after the passing of the Constitutional Amendment Bill, 2018 that removed the age limitations from the Constitution, Mabirizi petitioned national and international courts over the invasion of Special Forces Command that saw a number of MPs being beaten and others injured.
Kisakye has also complained about the Spokesperson of the Judiciary Solomon Muyita for speaking to the media about her name in this issue without even talking to her which created a wrong impression. As such she noted that since Muyita has proved to be inclined to speak on an uninformed point of view, from now she will be talking to the press directly about the positions she holds.
Trouble for Kyagulanyi started in 2020 when he declared his interest to stand for the Presidency, the topmost office in the country. Accordingly, Mabirizi who describes himself as an ardent believer of the rule of law tried to search for his academic papers arguing that the country has suffered with the current President Yoweri Museveni whose age and academic documents have been difficult to trace.
Mabirizi argues that the ban on the importation of goods from EAC partner states is unlawful and infringement on the fundamental and operational principles of the community, which among others encourages free movement of goods, transparency, democracy and rule of law, accountability and equitable distribution of benefits.
According to Article 144 of the Constitution, a Judicial officer may be removed from office only for inability to perform the functions of his or her office arising from infirmity of the body or mind, misbehavior or misconduct or incompetence.
