Kampala, Uganda: John Kabanda, a long-time trader in Kampala and fellow traders on Wednesday had their cheeks literally shine after seeing court process flow well and almost in their favor.
Kabanda and a team accuse Kampala based businesswoman, Christine Nabukeera claiming that she maliciously and unlawfully removed the door from his shop raising from failure to pay rent arrears that accumulated during the lockdown on 28th, July, 2020 after relief of Covid lockdown.
Speaking to journalists after Court sitting, john Kabanda lauded Court under Chief Magistrate Sanula Namboozo for giving poor opportunity to have justice because on many occasions rich people connive with judges to deny justice to poor but we now see everything move on smoothly.
Kabanda’s side presented all the witnesses at once and convinced the court about the matter.
The Magistrate issued 27th day of March, 2023 as the date for the two parties to reappear to enable court look through documents presented by Kabanda’s side.
Kabanda said that this will not his win but believes it is for all traders saying that many times there has been infringement on the poor hence denying justice to them but we believe this time justice will prevail.
He called on all traders across the country not to be silent when such malicious act is reached unto to them.
Some of the traders who had escorted John Kabanda at Buganda Road Copy bitterly condemned business lady Nabukeera for paralyzing their work but were so optimistic that justice is by their side.
Umoja Standard tried to reach out to the side of business lady, Nabukeera but poor efforts were futile however all we observed right from the Court room is that Nabukeera and her people looked defeated by the looks of their faces.
” I thank Court for standing with poor, Nabukeera always use money to bribe judges and give fake ruling and it has been the subject today but we were vigilant and defied justice Kamasanyu and we are contented this new magistrate will give us justice” Kabanda revealed.
