(ARISING FROM CIVIL SUIT NO. TOR-00-LD-CS-0005 OF 2013)

 

WABWIRE JEFFER JONES.................................................APPELLANT

  1.  

OKETCH SAM OTENGE............................................................RESPONDENT

 

BEFORE: THE HON. MR. JUSTICE HENRY I. KAWESA

 

RULING ON APPEAL

 

I notice that on the 22nd November 2016 parties were given a schedule to file submissions.

Appellant has neither filed nor appeared in court since then.  Respondent’s counsel has written a submission in which he invites this court to hold that all grounds of this appeal have been abandoned since appellant has failed to address court on the same.

 

I do find that appellant has failed to prosecute his appeal, his appeal is redundant.  None of the grounds of appeal have been addressed or proved.

 

Accordingly this appeal is dismissed with costs to the Respondent.

I so order.

 

Henry I. Kawesa
