Judiciary Driver Kisambira Feels No Remorse For His Murder Threats

Stanley Kisambira is the judiciary driver whose audio clips threatened a judge has responded to the permanent Secretary. Apparently, he said he would commit murder-suicide to kill a judge and his bodyguard over poor pay. Through his lawyers from the Centre for Legal Aid, Kisambira revealed that he does not regret what he said. He even asked the judiciary PS Dr Pius Bigirimana to cease from further absurdity.

In the audio clips, the driver of Mbale High Court Judge Godfrey Namundi can be heard complaining about salary disparities for drivers. He also expresses his dissatisfaction with earning Shs 200,000 since he joined the justice system in 2008.

He further states in the clip how very angered and disgusted he is. Additionally, he said that he can even ram into a stationary vehicle and kill a principal, bodyguard and himself. He said three people at once can be more painful compared to a bodyguard who only kills one principal. He said this in reference to the recent murder of the state minister of Labour, employment and Industrial Relations by his own bodyguard.

Bigirimana accused Kisambira of misconduct in a May 16 letter saying there are quite a number of alternative means to express his grievances.

“Inciting violence and threatening to intentionally cause an accident is unprofessional, criminal and punishable in the strongest terms. In addition, uttering false information that you are only paid Shs 200,0p0 contravenes section F-r of the public service standing orders,” Bigirimana said.

As a result, he asked that Kisambira, within 5 days explain his acts of gross misconduct. He also said Kisambira would face disciplinary action if he failed to follow the directives issued to him including dismissal from the judiciary.

The response from Kisambira’s lawyers said it is premature for Bigirimana to convict him of gross misconduct. Apparently, they say their client accepts no liability whatsoever for the contents or circulation of the audio clip at issue.

“A private communication, it contains protected political opinion and does not reasonably imply what you allege (incitement to violence, threatening accidents, uttering false information, etc)….as you rightly stated, our client did the right thing to express his dissatisfaction,” reads the letter in part.

The lawyers asked Bigirimana to terminate what they described as a travesty of justice. They said he should even provide Kisambira a decent package to address his dissatisfaction immediately.

Following the audios, police arrested Kisambira but released him two days later on police bond. The police apparently released him because they believed it is wrong to take him to court just because he talked about his grievances. In their view, the best solution is for the judiciary to review his salary.
