Justice Kenneth Kakuru was the only dissenting judge Museveni, who is now 73, would have been ineligible to run again when his current term expires in 2021 if the court had not ruled as it did.     The four Justices, Cheborion Barishaki, Elizabeth Musoke, Alphonse Owiny-Dollo and Remmy Kasule announced the decision during a day-long session held at the High Court in Mbale. In the same session, the Deputy Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny-Dollo, the

You should become a blogger cause it’s obvious you have nothing going on in your life' - Floyd Mayweather finally responds to 50 cent and its epic!

'You should become a blogger cause it’s obvious you have nothing going on in your life' - Floyd Mayweather finally responds to 50 cent and its epic!   For a while now, 50 cent has been shading his former bestie, Floyd Mayweather on social media and he's not responded.   Things however got messy this weekend as 50 cent’s recent attack came after it was reported that Mayweather is expecting a baby with his new girlfriend, Jennifer Duran. Reacting to the report, an Instagram user praised Duran for doing what Medina couldn’t do.   However, Medina disclosed that she never wanted to have a child with the boxer, adding that she wants a husband and not a baby. 50cent then used her response as an opportunity to attack Mayweather.   With that, Mayweather took to his page to give 50 cent a piece of his mind and its epic!   Read the full piece below... and by the way, 50 cent has promised to take his time to prepare an equally epic clapback...

Why Nigerian government can’t release Dasuki — Attorney General Malami explains The Federal Government has given reasons why it believes the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (retd), should not be granted bail. The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN, said Mr Dasuki’s personal right can be violated for the larger public good.   Malami in a new interview with the Voice of America, Hausa, published on July 13 obtained by PREMIUM TIMES, said  “What I want you to know is that issues concerning law and order under Muhammadu Buhari are sacrosanct and obeying court order is compulsory.

First photos of the rescued Thailand boys and their coach at the hospital   The first pictures have emerged from the hospital where the Thailand boys are being treated, after their dramatic rescue from a flooded cave system.   In the photos, several boys can be seen in face masks and hospital gowns, at least one giving a victory sign for the camera.   The pictures were published as new details emerged of the enormously complex effort to bring them out alive. The Thai Navy Seals also released new video showing how the rescue worked. Sources in the rescue operation, including divers who took part said the boys were heavily sedated ahead of the rescue to prevent them panicking in the dark, narrow, underwater passageways.     They were then strapped to one of two rescue divers tasked with shepherding each boy through the underwater parts of the system, and bundled into stretchers to be carried through the dry parts by meme at 11/07/2018 2:30 PM

Mother burns her 10-year-old daughter's face with electric iron in Akwa Ibom over missing 200 Naira A 10-year-old girl, Udeme Usen Etukudoh, may have been scarred for life after her mother burnt her face with electric iron for allegedly stealing N200.   The incident happened yesterday in Ikot Ekang Itam, Uruan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
