"We have not found evidence to support the Appellant's allegations of bribery against the first Respondent/Muhwezi. The learned trial Judge was therefore right in finding that the Appellant did not cite any provisions of the law not complied with for the petitioner to obtain a remedy under the Parliamentary Elections Act," reads the judgment.
Saheed Nsubuga also known as Derrick a fishmonger and a resident of Kiyindi village in Busimbi Sub-county in Mityana District on Tuesday was arraigned before the Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court presided over by Dr. Douglas Singiza.
Muhwezi was today appearing before a panel of three Court of Appeal Justices comprised of Cheborion Barishaki, Stephen Musota and Christopher Gashirabake for hearing of an election appeal filed against him.
This is not the first time that the Opposition in Parliament is moving to censure different Ministers. In the past parliaments, MPs succeeded once and had the very Jim Muhwezi sacked from cabinet, but subsequent attempts to censure ministers after the restoration of parties have collapsed after failing to raise the required signatures due to insufficient opposition number in parliament.
The Minister told parliament said that his role in signing the contract was based on a directive by President Yoweri Museveni. Muhwezi said that he received the directive on 13 June 2021 before his swearing-in as Minister.
