Ugandan Constitutional Court okays presidential age amendment, clears way for Museveni to be elected again after 32 years in power

Ugandan Constitutional Court okays presidential age amendment, clears way for Museveni to be elected again after 32 years in power

Ugandan Constitutional court on Friday, validated a constitutional amendment that removes an age limit for presidential aspirants, clearing the way for long-serving President Yoweri Museveni to remain in power for life.

 

After more than 11 hours of debate, 4 out of the 5 justices on the Constitutional court rejected a challenge to the amendment that prevented anyone 75 or older from holding the presidency.

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 last of the five judges to deliver his judgement, observed that framers of the 1995 Constitution never treated article 102 on the qualifications of the president as a fundamental feature of the Constitution that required entrenchment.

Justice Owiny-Dollo added that the amendment which was part of the original draft presented by Igara West Member of Parliament (MP) Raphael Magyezi went through the entire process of the consultation and passing a bill into law as outlined in the rules of procedure.

Remmy Kasule, who was the fourth bench member to deliver his judgment, observed that the framers of Constitution gave Parliament the mandate to amend the Constitution on presidential age limits without the need for a referendum.

 

 

He added that lifting of age limit for one who stands to be president or district chairperson constituted the original bill presented before Parliament by MP Magyezi, for which thorough consultations were undertaken by members of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party and their counterparts in the opposition.

However, like all the other judges, Justice Kasule rejected the amendment that extended the term of office for legislators and local government leaders as null and void. He also rejected the clause of the amendment bill that re-introduced the term limits in the constitution and entrenched it.

Justice Kasule said the rule of the Constitutional Court is not to legislate laws but interpretation. He said it is right for the court to nullify amendments passed illegally and uphold those amended through correct procedures.

Noting that there were no clear procedures on how Ugandans can be consulted when the constitution is being amended by Parliament, Kasule recommended that such regulations be put in place. Such procedures, he said would in the future help court in determining whether they were followed or not.

 

 

However, Justice Kenneth Kakuru declared the whole amendment process unconstitutional and urged that the entire amendment act should be purged from the Constitution.

In his judgement, Justice Owiny Dollo made reference to the ease with which parliament amends the Constitution arguing that the future generations will be furious and extremely harsh in their judgement of the current leadership for bequeathing to them a state that has no respect for constitutionalism.

"Before the constitution has been sufficiently tested, before the ink dried, it has been subjected to as many as five amendments," Justice Owiny-Dollo said and added that often, the reasons given for the amendment of the Constitution are evidently personal to MPs

''I have fought for Okada men, Musicians and others, now is the time for me to fight for Gays in Nigeria'' CharlyBoy

''I have fought for Okada men, Musicians and others, now is the time for me to fight for Gays in Nigeria'' CharlyBoy

Singer and social activist, Charly Boy says he has reactivated his fight for the Lesbian, Gay, Nisexual and Transgender LGBT community in Nigeria. His renewed vigor to fight for the rights of the LGBT is coming against the backdrop of his daughter, Dewy Oputa, who recently came out as a Lesbian and also showed off her lesbian partner.

 

In a post shared on his IG page this morning, CharlyBoy said he has in time past fought for Okada riders, Musicians and many others and that now is the time for him to fight for the LGBT community in Nigeria. Read what he wrote below

All that I have done for over 50yrs of my life is to root for the underdogs.
I turned my back on my goldplated pedigree and wondered into the unknown.

I discovered that victory is a million times sweeter as an underdog. Oh!!!!! Yes.

My life has been one Big fight, against bad habits, poverty, hopelessness and principalities.
But I never backed down.

I battled for the rights of the Okada's  to make a living.I battled for the rights, respect and the 
big money for the Nigerian Musician, spent weeks in the police cell, as a pman president. 
Today, thank God they have a better life. Now am the President of Frustrated Nigerians. 
I am battling with my comrades to stop the senseless killings of Nigerians.
The oppression of Inocent Nigerians and the weaponisation of hunger.

Many battles too many to mention. I have been beaten black and blue by
the military, police, security agents, been teargassed, shot at, stoned and most time misunderstood even by the people I fight for.

No big deal because I never back down. Now I reactivate my fight in defence of the LGBT community.? You know something? Openness may not completely disarm prejudice
but is a good place to start. I am hoping that my support will be a show of strength to the Nigerian LGBT ?community. Because seriously speaking

To each his own.

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...

Curtis “Confidential Informant” Jackson, you're mad because your oldest son Marquees mother doesn’t want to be with you! Your Son, your own flesh and blood don't want nothing to do with you! You haven't had a hit song on radio in who knows when and you’re definitely not hot enough to even sell records anymore so Interscope dropped you.

You are jealous of any rapper, athlete or entertainer that’s hot or got something going on for themselves. You are a certified snitch and we got paperwork to prove it. You talk about Ja-Rule but you stole his whole style and ran with it! You’re the only self proclaimed gangster that’s never put in work! You need to pay homage to the real 50cent for stealing his name and his storyline.

Your claim to fame was getting shot numerous times & living to tell it and you think that's Gangster? Where at? You’re currently living in a fucking apartment in Jersey, you are always in somebody else's business just to stay relevant. You should just become a blogger cause it’s obvious you don’t have nothing going on in your life. Are you mad that Kanye West ended your career?

The only thing you got going on is Power and everybody watches that because Ghost is a dope ass character on the show. You can leave the show everybody will still watch Power, but out here in the real world I’m The Real Ghost.

That’s not a Mansion in Connecticut that you're in debt for, that’s a dump, a money pit an oversized trap house! It was dope when Mike Tyson had it in the late 80’s early 90’s, but you couldn't afford to maintain it. You’re always talking about somebody is broke, but the last time I checked it was Curtis Jackson that filed for bankruptcy not Floyd Mayweather.

So quick to gossip like a Bitch, why don't you tell everybody how you got Herpes from DJ. Where's your memes for that, huh? Or better yet, post on how your Coca-Cola deal wasn’t really 300 million you fucking liar and tell how that spinning G-Unit necklace that somebody got robbed for was fake. Just remember, I was with you everyday and your driver Bruce was my driver also. I know where all your bones are buried, so be easy Curtis Jackson! And by the way, don’t ask to borrow no more money from me.

 


50 cent says, 

 

I must have hurt your feelings champ,you had someone write a book I’m gonna take my time with this so I get it all out we are gonna start with your 11 Domestic violence cases. Wait a minute I’ll do them in order remember you asked for this.

''I will probe Fayose once I assume office'' Kayode Fayemi

Ekiti state governor-elect, Kayode Fayemi, says he will be probing the financial recor of the incumbent governor, Ayo Fayose, once he assumes office in October this year. Fayemi said this yesterday to state house correspondents when he went to show President Buhari his certificate of return.

 

According to Fayemi, it is important to know how much revenue the state generated during Fayose's administration and why the Fayose-administration couldn't pay salaries for months.

''It will be irresponsible on my part to say to you that we will not examine what transpired in the last four years in the manner of governance. What were the receipts in terms of revenue into Ekiti state. What were the expenditure in that period? Why were we not able to pay salaries?'' he said

Chance The Rapper buys news website in Chicago  

Chance The Rapper buys news website in Chicago

 

Chance The Rapper has purchased popular news website Chicagoist with the aim of "amplifying diverse voices and content".  

 

The 25-year-old Chicago born rapper made the announcement in his song "I Might Need Security" and New York's public radio station WNYC, which previously owned the Chicagoist, confirmed the purchase on Thursday.  

 

The deal means that Chance's Social Media LLC company now owns all of the Chicagoist's assets, including its archives and social media channels.  Chance said in a statement that he was "extremely excited" about the purchase, adding that the site was an "integral local platform for Chicago news, events and entertainment". 

 

Earlier, the rapper released a song in which he says that he bought the Chicagoist to produce content to run "racist" media organisations out of business. He said he was looking forward to relaunching the site, which has been dormant since last November, and "bringing the people of Chicago an independent media outlet".

 

A statement from WNYC, which took ownership of the Chicagoist assets from billionaire businessman Joe Ricketts in February, said it was "delighted" that the business was "finding a new home in the hands of a proud Chicagoan".  Last year, Chance announced that he was giving $1m (£800,000) to schools in Chicago for "arts and enrichment programming", while challenging big companies and corporations to follow his lead.

Why Nigerian government can’t release Dasuki — Attorney General Malami explains

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. However you should also know that there is a general consensus world over that where the dispute is only between individuals, then you can consider the issue based on the instant situation. But if the dispute is about an issue that affects an entire nation, then you have to remember that government is about the people not for only an individual.

 

“So you have to look at it from this perspective. If the issue about an individual coincides with that which affects the people of a nation and you are now saying the government did not obey a court order that infringes on a single person’s rights. Remember we are talking about a person who was instrumental to the deaths of over one hundred thousand people. Are you saying that the rights of one person is more important than that of 100,000 who lost their lives?

 

Reports have shown that there was massive mismanagement of funds meant for military hardware which the military could not access and that led to the death of many, embezzlement of the fund and because of that many people have lost their lives. Obeying the court is not the issue per say. Are we going to take the issue of an individual more important than that of the people? The government’s main responsibility is for and about the people. The essence of governance is to better the lives of its people. So you have to weigh it based on that; the rights of an individual or the rights of the people.”

 

Malami however, said the government may decide to appeal the court order if it feels compelled to do so.  ]

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

Former Pakistan PM sentenced to 10 years for corruption; daughter gets 7, fined $2.6 million 

Former Pakistan PM sentenced to 10 years for corruption; daughter gets 7, fined $2.6 million

Former Pakistan Prime minister, Nawaz Sharif has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for corruption, while his daughter Maryam Sharif has been given seven years.

The verdict was delivered by an accountability court in Pakistan in one of the four cases of corruption against Nawaz Sharif - the Avenfield corruption case, which is related to the ownership of four flats in the posh Avenfield House in London.

 

"Nawaz Sharif has been awarded 10 years imprisonment" over the purchase of high-end properties in London, defence lawyer Mohammad Aurangzeb told news agency AFP.

 

 

Prosecution lawyer Sardar Muzaffar Abbas also said that the court had ordered the properties be confiscated.

Both Nawaz Sharif and Maryam are in London, attending to the former PM's wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, who was diagnosed with throat cancer last year and shifted to the UK for treatment. Since then, Maryam and Nawaz Sharif have made several trips back and forth from London to attend the hearings and attend to Kulsoom.

 

 

Nawaz Sharif wanted the announcement of the verdict delayed by a week, but that request was dismissed by the court today. Mr Sharif had said he wanted to hear the judgement of the case while standing in the courtroom where he "endured more than 100 hearings" with his daughter.

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam were also fined heavily by the court. While Nawaz Sharif will have to pay $10 million, his daughter has been fined $2.6 million.

The court judgement runs over 100 pages.
The Avenfield case was among the four corruption cases filed against the former PM and his children by the NAB on the Supreme Court's orders in the Panama Papers case which disqualified Nawaz Sharif.

Nawaz Sharif, a three-time prime minister, resigned from the post last year after Pakistan's Supreme Court disqualified him from holding public office and ruled that graft cases be filed against him and his children over the Panama Papers scandal.

Mother burns her 10-year-old daughter's face with electric iron in Akwa Ibom over missing 200 Naira

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. Read report by an NGO, Child's Right and Rehabilitation Network (CRARN).

 

 

Early Thursday, I met ten-year-old Udeme Usen Etukudoh, an indigene of Ikot Ekang Itam, being treated for burns and a deep cut on her face at a small pharmacy along Calabar/Itu Road. Upon inquiry, I learned that Udeme was severely abused by her own mother for "stealing N200", the sum which is less than a dollar.

Udeme, a Primary 5 pupil of RCM School, near Itam Police Divisional Headquarters, said her mother, because of the missing N200, pushed the plug of an electric iron into an electrical socket and further applied the extremely hot device on parts of her body. The burnings later disfigured her face. Not satisfied with the burns, the girl said her mother used a short wood to hit and tear open her right chin just by her eye. Her mother, Aniedi Etim Akpan (according to the little girl), had gone out for petty trading at the popular Itam market as of the time I visited their house to make findings. Udeme's stepfather, whose name could not be ascertained at the time of checks, and a woman who said she was the little girl's elder sister, said that the missing money was stolen by Udeme, and that she deserved the burns dealt on her as "punishment". But the little girl, who lives with her mother and stepfather, denied stealing the money. She said anytime money gets missing from her step father's pocket or house, the theft would be attributed to her. She said she was innocent of the accusation. Upon further inquiry, Udeme led me to her biological father, Usen Okon Etukudoh, a bricklayer who lives just close to where his daughter lives with her mother. Usen said Udeme had opted to stay with her mother, Aniedi, after their separation some years back, but that he would stab his former wife with a broken bottle if anything happens to his daughter.

As at 11.30 am, Udeme, dressed in her school uniform, had not taken breakfast when I met her at the pharmacy. To show the extent of trauma the little girl went through, the step-father who took her to the pharmacy shop rejected the bill of N4,000 he was asked to pay for the child's emergency treatment. He wanted to pay N2,000 instead. I had to buy a loaf of bread and Coca-Cola so that she could eat something before being administered with what the pharmacy attendant called "inflammatory injection" to stop the pain. Two things are likely to happen to the child if her father decides to let her stay continuously with her mother (as I later told him): it is either that she leaves the house (to God knows where) in order to be free from torture or she gets killed secretly by her mother and stepfather. God help the hapless child!


 

Her mother, Aniedi Etim Akpan.
