Sipapa’s Woes Deepen As He Runs To NUP Lawyers – They Quickly Dump Him

Sipapa, the once-notorious city socialite, has been behind bars for a number of weeks now. He had a team of lawyers represent him from the onset, however, these immediately quit.

A new team of lawyers soon got instructions to represent him, however, as of today, they have also hung their boots.

Wameli and Company Advocates on Tuesday, October, 11, 2022  told court that they had been given instructions to represent the city socialite together with his wife, Shamilah Nakiyimba.

This is in the case of robbery of shs1.6 billion from a South Sudanese national. In a twist of events, however, the lawyers have filed a notice to the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Makindye Residents State Attorney and the accused informing them of their withdrawal from representing the jailed socialite.

“All matters connected to the same should be served on the accused persons personally or their new lawyers, if any,” the lawyers from Wameli and Company Advocates wrote.

One of his new lawyers, Anthony Wameli who is also the head of the legal department for the opposition NUP separately said they could not represent Sipapa. This is because he is the very person who also terrorized the party sometime in 2020.

“Sipapa carried out many violent and illegal acts on members of the National Unity Platform and People Power. Representing him puts me and my law firm in a conflicting position.”

In September 2020, Sipapa who was traveling in a convoy of vehicles fired live bullets towards NUP headquarters in Kamwokya.

He allegedly injured some party members. He had earlier on August 30 done a similar act of provoking the opposition party supporters.

According to Wameli, instructions for representation had been received by his colleague in the law firm, Geoffrey Turyamusiima.

However, he was not well versed with the background of the “terror” caused by Sipapa towards NUP and its members.

Sipapa and his wife, Shamilah Nakiyimba face charges related to aggravated robbery. This is contrary to section 285 and 286 of the Penal Code Act. He is expected to return to court on November, 10, 2022.
