Recover our Sh200m from Oulanya, Alupo and Mpuuga, Fumes Mabirizi

Serial litigant Male Mabirizi wants the Vice President Jessica Alupo, Parliament Speaker Jacob Oulanya, Leader of Opposition in Parliament Mathias Mpuuga and any of their officials facilitated with vehicles by virtue of their offices to immediately return the Sh200 million paid into their accounts for MPs to buy cars.

In his petition already filed at the High Court, Mabirizi says it is in the interest of the rule of law for the money to be recovered from the recipients. Mabirize’s demand is part of an omnibus petition in which he also wants the court to issue an injunction stopping any official from implementing a cabinet decision to compel all motorists to pay for the fitting of tracking devices in their vehicles. 

Mabirizi says this this cannot be done without an Act of Parliament under which citizens can ascertain whether the move does not infringe on their right to privacy. Last week security Minister Jim Muhwezi announced that all vehicles and motorcycles will be fitted with electronic tracking devices paid for by the owners and supplied by a Russian company Global Systems LLC.

But Mabirizi even questions the procedure under which the company was selected, whether it followed the laws of Uganda regarding procurement.

The hearing of the case is yet to be fixed.
