RULING BY HON. MR. JUSTICE JOSEPH MURANGIRA

 

 

The applicants through their lawyers M/s Akampumuza & Co. Advocate filed this application against the respondents jointly or/and severally. The respondent though they were duly served with this application chose not to file affidavits in reply.

 

Further, on the date this application came up for hearing the parties were directed to file in Court written submissions. Counsel for the applicants gracefully complied with the directives of the Court and filed his written submissions together with the authorities he had relied upon in his written submission in record time allocated to him. Counsel for the respondents ignored or neglected or/ and refused to file the respondents’ written submissions.

 

In view of the above, since this application is not contested by the respondents, I do not see any need to indulge myself in writing a length and detailed ruling in this matter.

 

Consequent to the above, therefore, I have perused the application together the affidavit in support plus the written submissions and the authorities cited by Counsel for the applicants and I am convinced that this application has merit. It ought to succeed.

 

In the result and for the detailed  reasons given in the written submissions by Counsel for the applicants, this application is allowed in the terms and orders  being sought therein with costs in the cause.

 

Dated at Kampala this  6th day of June, 2013
