Odoki not moved by ruling

Odoki new

Former chief justice Benjamin Odoki says he is not shaken by the constitutional court ruling stopping his re-appointment to the top judicial seat.

Four justices of the constitutional court ruled that re-appointing Odoki to the position after clocking 70 would be a violation of the constitution.

In an exclusive interview with KFM, Odoki said that he is confident that he has served the country well and ready to see a new chief justice.

Meanwhile Legislators have also welcomed the Constitutional Court ruling .

MPs including Joseph Ssewungu, Mariam Nalubega and Bernard Atiku say the ruling is justification of Parliament’s reservation on Odoki’s reappointment.

The Democratic Party has also welcomed the ruling saying democracy can be upheld if the Constitution is implemented to the letter as DP’s Secretary General, Matthias Nsubuga further explains.
