“Based on the fact that non tolerance of illegalities in all courts of law is the baseline of all legal structures and Judicial proceedings internationally, this case is a weighing scale on the independence of the Ugandan Judiciary.”
Can Kiryowa Kiwanuka’s political influence as current attorney general and Mr. Karugire’s Marital status Save Diamond Trust Bank from the illegalities committed and admitted on Court records or this case is a beam of hope to all Ugandans as a solution to this cancer of the exploitative foreign banks that unlawfully debit monies from Ugandans’ accounts? Is Kiryowa Kiwanuka being the attorney general and at the same time a partner in K & K advocates amounting to conflict of interest thus frustrating and compromising the independence of the Judiciary?
In any given society once politicians and public servants start financially competing with the private business community it compromises social economic development and upward transformation of the society at large as they start using their positions to undermine all structures, systems and policies put in place to carry the nation forward.
It should be noted that: Diamond Trust Bank (DTB) unlawfully debited Ugx.120 Billions from Ham Enterprises (U) Limited accounts and admitted to committing illegalities at high court on court records when Mr. Kiryowa Kiwanuka told the court that DTB had no license to operate in Uganda and judgment was made in favor of ham enterprises at the high court for recovery of the debited monies from the bank.
The bank and its lawyers k&k advocates additionally at supreme court admitted failure of the Court of Appeal to address the substantial point of illegality in their submission of 5th November 2021.
Also on 11 November 2021 Ham filed an application stating that DTB had concurred with him that the Court of Appeal (COA) justices; Richard Buteera, Christopher Madrama, and Keneth Kakuma, did not address the issues of illegality contrary to the provisions of the financial institutions act on which grounds judgment was rightfully entered at high court.
Key Questions to Note:
■ Can the Ugandan Supreme Court Shield an Illegality contrary to the international baseline for judicial proceedings and legal structures? Are the Supreme Court judges strong enough to administer justice and uphold the Law?
■ Can Kiryowa Kiwanuka’s political influence as the current Attorney General and Mr. Karugire’s marital status Save Diamond Trust Bank from the illegalities committed and admitted on Court records?
■ Is Kiryowa Kiwanuka being the attorney general and at the same time a partner in K & K advocates amounting to conflict of interest and frustrating and compromising the independence of the Judiciary?
■ Can Diamond Trust Bank Escape the Law given our weak legal structures and policies as a nation
■ Will this case serve Ugandans from the current exploitative poorly regulated banking system
