According to him, while appointing the judges, the president used the name Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. His name was changed in an October 6, 2020 deed poll to Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni.
“By Deed poll dated October 6, 2020, published in Uganda Gazette of October 7, 2020, Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni formally and absolutely renounced and abandoned the name Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and declared that he shall at all times from then in all records, deeds and instruments in writing and in all occasions that require the use of his full name,” Mabirizi says in his affidavit.
Due to this, Mabirizi says it was illegal for Yoweri K. Museveni to appoint judges. Especially because he is now Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni.
“Since the name Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was formally and absolutely renounced and abandoned, it is illegal to sign in that name and any document issued in such name is illegal, null, and void.”
In August, the president appointed seven judges, two of whom to the Court of Appeal and five to the High Court.
The judges included Eva Luswata and Christopher Gashirabake(Court of Appeal) and Tom Chemutai, Lawrence Tweyanze, Vincent Wagona, Alice Komuhangi and Florence Nakacwa to the High Court.
Mabirizi has on so many occasions taken Museveni to court on grounds of his name. Unfortunately, they have done nothing in his favor regardless of all the effort he puts in.
