The constitutional court has finally set 26/July 2018 as the date at which it will deliver the long awaited ruling on the consolidated application filed in court challenging the amendment of the Presidential Age limit law.

According to the hearing notice dated 13 July and signed by the Court of Appeal Deputy Registrar Alfonse Owiny Dollo, he noted that: “If no appearance is made on your behalf by yourself or someone authorized to act for you, the judgement will be delivered in your absence.”

He noted that the judgement will be delivered at Mbale High Court at exactly 09:30 a.m.

This notice has been addressed to Male Hassan Mabirizi, Lukwago and company advocates, Rwakafuz, Abeine-Burygyeya and company advocate, Uganda Law society and Attorney General.
